"Cogito, ergo sum" is a philosophical statement made by French philosopher René Descartes in 1637. The Latin translation into English is "I think, therefore I am", and stands as the "first principle" of Descartes's thought process. Leaders who "Think Reliability" will therefore "Enhance Reliability" in their operations.
