The Leadership Mints Guy
Here’s an idea to stay focused on your long-term goals. Reading time: 2:13.
It’s too easy to focus only on what HAPPENS next. Sequentially.
It’s more demanding to step back–thoughtfully, strategically and collectively–to carefully consider – what NEXT could happen. Consequentially.
Yet sometimes short-term benefits overshadow long-term objectives.
That’s why I applaud leaders who contain their short-term focus like one of my clients, the first woman to be named CEO of the organization. She pointed to a large framed photo of a cat and told me an allegory I will never forget on the significance of leaders thinking long-term.
