You need…

You need people who can walk their companies into the future rather than back them into the future.

– Warren Bennis


You are…

You are educated.

Your certification is in your degree.

You may think of it as the ticket to the good life.

Let me ask you to think of an alternative.

Think of it as your ticket to change the world.

– Tom Brokaw

All blame…

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for… reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration.

– Casey Stengel


Leaders can help employees connect with and relate to people across organisational divides by doing four things:

  • developing and developing cultural brokers
  • encouraging employees to ask questions
  • helping people to see things through other peoples’ eyes
  • broadening everybody’s vision of internal & external expertise networks

– Tiziana Casciaro, Amy C.Edmondson & Sujin Jang (HBR May-June 2019)
