We worship winners – especially those who demonstrate leadership, confront a crisis and prevail. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as the hero did not create the crisis in the first place.
But what about those who keep crises from erupting at all?
Who are the UNSUNG heroes working for you (and helping you avoid the ditch)?
Who are the wise that simply do the right thing, rather than the bold thing?
Are you only recognizing the “heroes” in your company, and ignoring those who help you avoid the storms altogether?
