Are You Hiding?

By ,

“Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.”
~W. Clement Stone

If you’re like most leaders, you’re not getting out of your office enough.  If so, what’s your excuse?

The informal organization drives the bus. If you want to influence them, you need to know who they are and what they’re thinking, feeling, and saying. You’re in the wrong role if you’re hiding behind a middleman.  We’re talking about close human contact, not a check-the-box exercise. It’s time to get your butt out of the seat, and have the courage to connect with the folks doing the heavy lifting.

The only way around is through. Are you hiding? The toughest obstacle is getting to the starting line.
