This month’s leadership quote:
“If we only focus on fixing what’s wrong, we forget to notice and build what is good and strong.”
So often in our quest to be better, both as people and in our companies, we forget this advice. No question, sometimes fixing is what is required, technology becomes outdated, systems break down, etc.
And many times, the best approach is first to notice what is good and strong and then work to build upon it. Or as I am fond of saying, “discover both our’s and our company’s genius and then work to become excellent at what we are already good at.”
Next time, you make the list of what needs fixing, perhaps draw a line and then make a list of what is good and needs building.
