This month’s leadership quote:

“If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near.”

-Jack Welch

When things are going well, it’s easy to become complacent, even arrogant. We become married to a point of view. After all, we built our business based on these beliefs and it has worked. Often it is our own people who tell us that the old way may not be appropriate today. Their message, as Jack reminds us, is the rate of change outside might dictate the need for more change inside.

The question is, “are we listening?”
