Monday Quote of the Week: What do think? Truth or Not?

Isn’t this an easy but poor habit to fall into?

When we ask advice we are usually looking for an accomplice

The power of this quote is that we recognize it is too often true. We aren’t really seeking “another opinion” or a “challenging” point of view, at least not often enough.

Let this be a valuable reminder that the best ideas emerge from differing opinions, each challenging the other, until the best answer appears.

Monday Quote of the Week: Do you remember that ol’ “seats on the bus” thing?

This is so crucial, I’ll say it again: You’ve got to get everyone in the right seat on the bus.

Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupidYou may recall an earlier quote from the infamous Raymond Reddington, which addresses this issue from a different angle.

If you pay close attention to this, talk to your people and truly understand their interests and capabilities, you’ll find that the well-oiled machine you’re creating will glide smoothly wherever you point it.

We Salute Our Heroes and those who made the ultimate sacrifice

Today, we pay tribute to the young men and women who defend the freedom we hold so dearly. And, it is never more poignant and meaningful than when our men and women are serving overseas in harm’s way.

For me, this quotation on an Arlington National Cemetery memorial states exactly why they deserve our respect, admiration and support.

“Not for fame or reward. Not for place or for rank. Not fueled by ambition or goaded by necessity but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it. These men suffered all – sacrificed all – dared all – and died”

Our soldiers don’t wonder “why”. They “do their duty” and selflessly accept their mission to defend our freedom and the values we cherish.

Take a moment from your busy day . . . shed a few tears as I always do . . . and remember the sacrifices they have made through the years … and continue to make every day … at great risk … but with an unwavering dedication to the service of their country.

Monday Quote of the Week: Leaders Remember: You’re Leading Teams of Regular People

I wanted to share this concept with you today because it is a powerful reminder that as leaders, we’re working with average human beings just like ourselves.

No institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under leadership composed of average human beings

Sure, there might be a few scattered superstars among us, but those are the exceptions.

Everyone else is like us … getting up early to get the kids to school, getting lunches packed, schedules aligned … providing for their families.

They have good days and bad, feel pain and pleasure and in almost all cases, are trying to do the best job they can.

Don’t forget: You’re leading teams of regular people.
