It has been said that a recession is when your friend loses their job, a depression is when you lose yours. Last week I outlined 5 trends that will disrupt every business in the next five years. The first trend we will examine is the one that has the potential to create a depression in your world.
The disruption is coming. It won’t be just a minor change but a radical change that radically alters the way we see the world. That disruption will cause many tremendous pain. The question we must ask is, “Will you be on the cutting edge or the bleeding edge of that disruption?”
There is an easier way. For years we have heard that the best way to lead is to build a power base upon networks of powerful people in important positions.
Each of us has the power to do far more than we ever thought possible.In every situation, we have the ability to leverage our power and lead ourselves (and our organizations) to do what others dismissed as “impossible.”
Pain costs our companies billions every year. Trauma is bad enough but when leaders make insensitive decisions it increases the intensity of the pain. This is a true story. I wished it wasn’t.
