Warwick John Fahy has done a masterful job distilling how Jack Ma has learned to influence, move and shape people, an organization, even the world economy by using the strength of his inner core–his character, values, thinking patterns and emotions into driving greatness in his outer core, which is what the world see’s and ultimately determines his success and will determine his legacy.
