We will never end poverty if we don’t tackle climate change  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Many people could benefit from meditation  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) I’ve spent my entire life working to invest in human beings and human communities, to help them move down the path of economic development.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) What I learned from my work as a physician is that even with the most complicated patients, the most complicated problems, you’ve got to look hard to find every piece of data and evidence that you can to improve your decision-making. Medicine has taught me to be very much evidence-based and data-driven in making decisions.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Economic development and poverty alleviation are so complicated that I don’t think there’s a single background or a single discipline that is sufficient to tackle these great human problems.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) I think one of the main challenges that the World Bank faces is creating an organizational structure that doesn’t get in the way of its staff. We have fantastic staff. People told me as I was coming into the organization that the greatest asset of the World Bank Group is its staff, and I think there’s no question that that’s the case.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) World Bank is a bank that’s focused on economic development and poverty alleviation  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Growing economies are critical; we will never be able to end poverty unless economies are growing. We also need to find ways of growing economies so that the growth creates good jobs, especially for young people, especially for women, especially for the poorest who have been excluded from the economic system.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) One of the things I had to really work on is, when you’re the leader of an organization, people look at the expression on your face. Your mood has a lot to do with how people think the whole organization is doing.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) One of the lessons of leadership worth emphasizing is that you want to get to know other great leaders and take their advice. At some point in your development, it’s only people who’ve been in the seat of having to be leaders who can help you in a deep way.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) In my own view, the life expectancy of Native Americans in the United States is one of the really great moral crises that we face.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) The relationship between the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala fundamentally changes with meditation.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) We are watching things happen with one degree changes in ocean temperature that we thought wouldn’t happen until there were two or three degree changes in ocean temperature. These are facts.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Institutionalized discrimination is bad for people and for societies. Widespread discrimination is also bad for economies. There is clear evidence that when societies enact laws that prevent productive people from fully participating in the workforce, economies suffer.  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Social media has changed the world forever. We’re not going to go backwards. People are not going to accept being poor, accept being excluded anymore  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) I want to eradicate poverty. I think that theres a tremendous passion for that inside the World Bank  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) What happens when corn and wheat prices rise is that we see real increases in malnutrition and under-nutrition. And when children are malnourished, their brain development actually slows down and is affected. So this is not just a short-term impact  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) No matter how good you think you are as a leader, my goodness, the people around you will have all kinds of ideas for how you can get better. So for me, the most fundamental thing about leadership is to have the humility to continue to get feedback and to try to get better - because your job is to try to help everybody else get better  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Why is it that when it comes to our most cherished social goal [health care], we not only tolerate poor execution, sometimes we even celebrate it  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) There will be water and food fights everywhere  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) We will never end poverty if we don’t tackle climate change  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) We need to have a plan equal to the challenge  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Water and sanitation has not had the same kind of champion that global health, and even education, have had  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) Ending poverty and ensuring sustainability are the defining challenges of our time. Energy is central to both of them  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes) One of the most important things about leadership is that you have to have the kind of humility that will allow you to be coached  (Jim Yong Kim Quotes)
