If…

If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.

Sooner…

Sooner or later every leader begins to understand how little power he or she really has…as organisations become more complex and the environment more intense it becomes impossible to get things done through force of leadership.

When…

When we see the need for deep change, we usually see it as something that needs to take place in someone else. In our roles of authority, we are particularly quick to direct others to change. Such directives often fail, and we respond to the resistance by increasing our efforts. The power struggle that follows seldom results in change nor brings about excellence. One of the most important insights about the need to bring about deep change in others has to do with where deep change actually starts.
