My message

  • Starve your distractions and feed your focus.
  • The answer to the question of “how do I do it …” is one word.   “Yes” - Peter Block
  • People work to do their best; leaders need to ensure they support those efforts.
  • When asked by General Motors CEO Alfred P Sloan “What do you do with unmotivated and unproductive workers?”, manufacturing quality guru W. Edwards Deming responded, ‘First, did you hire them that way or make them way?’ The best way to solve a problem is to start with a question … ”How am I part of the problem?”
