Dennis Donovan describes his style of leadership as being an agent for change. When he joined Home Depot as an executive vice president, his goal was to put a human resources person in every store.

“People thought I was crazy,” he says, but he filled 1,300 human resources slots in 12 weeks.

Donovan’s secret? The power of momentum. “Velocity,” he says, “is our friend in the game of change.”
