Leadership Quote

Leadership Quote / July 2005

“CEOs need to focus first on changing themselves before they try to change the rest of the company. The process resembles an archaeological dig, or at least it did for me. As I uncovered and solved one problem, I almost invariably exposed another, deeper problem. As I gained one insight and mastered one situation, another situation arose that required new insight and more learning. As I approached one goal, a new, more important, but more distant goals always began to take shape.” ~Ralph Stayer , “How I Learned to Let My Workers Lead”  Harvard Business Review, November-December 1990.
