Micky Onvural, CEO of Bonobos, is a courage icon in WYLD’s playbook. Micky defines courage as “taking a stand or making a decision, based on your beliefs, even when others, or the market may indicate otherwise.” So what does courage look like in her everyday leadership?
Micky has social courage and initiative, her Positivity and WOO, create instant connection and comfort with anyone from any walk of life, industry or expertise. She boldly meets others where they are and curiously learns who they are and what they need to be their best. Without fail she communicates the truth – simply and vulnerably. Inclusive and open, Micky will deliver hard messages and bring radical candor to diffuse incongruency, ambiguity or unethical behavior. Her cognitive speed and big picture thinking gives her an intensity and formidable presence that compliments her kindness and approachability.
WYLD has learned a lot from the Bonobos leadership team; it is their courage, care and authenticity that drives their vision and customer focus.
