Welcome All!

If you do not adapt, if you do not learn, you will wither, you will die.

An Ordinary Day in a Leader’s Life

You will be frustrated
And so you should
Because that’s what happens
When you consult contrarians.

You will be impatient
And so you should
Because you’ll have to listen more
Than you’re inclined or deem necessary.

You will be surprised
And so you should
Because the people you lead
Are full of biases, fears, and needs.

You will be uncomfortable
And so you should
Because a leader leads
Into difficult and unknown territory.

You will be embarrassed
And so you should
Because you too make mistakes
Which you have to acknowledge and share.

You will be insecure
And so you should
Because there are many business uncertainties
And unexpected twists and turns.

You, leader, will have to keep learning
Because what worked last month
Or in your previous job or context
Often does not work here, now, tomorrow.
