Lead, Follow Or Get Out Of The Way

Once a business owner has decided that the time for talking is done, the act of acting requires group participation.

But because change scares so many people, many companies end up with a few people pushing a boulder up a hill made rockier by bodies lying across the path.

Often they’re not lying there to be deliberately obstructive. But neither are they clearing the way. Or pushing from below.

If you’re serious about taking your business into a better future you should give your employees three choices.

Show me a better way.

Help me.

Stand aside.

And if the stand aside group stand aside for more than a few minutes, have them stand outside.


There are a lot of people waiting to get in.
