Ditch the yellow brick road
Posted By David Henderson, 13/01/2015 4:56:55 PM

Perhaps you can feel a light breeze. Maybe it’s more like a strong head wind. Or you may already be spinning in the vortex of the storm. There is a tornado coming that will change the fundamentals of how and why we work. Sooner or later you are likely to wake up and realize you’re not in Kansas anymore.

When the dust settles, step outside and try not to trip over the wicked witch of ‘that’s the way we’ve always done it’ on your way out. Befriend the good witch of curiosity. You’ll also need to team up with;

  • Individuals in search of a new brain; to think differently, create and decide how to do what needs to be done.
  • Leaders in search of courage; to empower and trust others, and… well, lead.
  • Organisations in desperate search of heart.  

The vision is clear (why, you’re off to see the Wizard!).  The how is not. The way forward rewards the collaborator. Success depends on the collective.  

Not convinced?  Click the heels of those sparkling ruby heels three times and say, "There's no place like home...There's no place like home...There's no place like home."  Nothing?  That's because there's no place like right here.  Ditch the yellow brick road and start skipping.
