Naked Leader Week 886 – 24 August 2020
Time to read: 1 minute
Thank you for your feedback to last week’s NL Weekly – ‘Go Simple’
The most frequent question I was asked was – ‘if simple is the way to go, why aren’t more organisations doing it?’
Because simple is never easy – it’s really hard.
Making that difficult phone call when it’s simple to dial the number.
Running meetings until their outcome is achieved, and then the meeting stops.
Saying ‘I Love You’ and not expecting anything in return.
And so on
Mark Twain famously said:
“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
Going Simple takes courage, bravery and standing out from the crowd
Do it, anyway.
Most of the crowd will support you doing it. In silence at first, then, when your idea is supported, more openly, and finally when it succeeds, you will have more people owning the idea than work in the organisation!
Start with something small, gather a few friends and colleagues around your idea before you go ‘public’, and then do it.
With my love and best wishes
