“We shall return to proven ways – not because they are old, but because they are true.” — Barry Goldwater
“It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessential.” — Bruce Lee
Leaders both in and out of the workplace are responsible for knowing when to cling to the ways and when to innovate. Paying attention to what works and what does not is the easiest test for this.
How many times have we seen leaders make change just for change’s sake? That practice is disruptive and usually frustrating. Start changes by hacking away what isn’t working.
