The next time you think something is “impossible”, remember this week.

When you hear yourself saying “there’s no way we could…”, remember this week.

If you think that massive disruption of a system is too big to be achieved, remember this week.

And if you’re gridlocked, thinking that major changes require months of planning, remember this week.

When the “why” is compelling enough, people, businesses and whole systems can turn upside down with virtually no notice. Remember that the next time you’re trying to initiate a change instead of reacting to one.

 

I'm the chief connector at leadership dots where I serve as "the string" for individuals and organizations. Like stringing pearls together to make a necklace, "being the string" is an intentional way of thinking and behaving – making linkages between things that otherwise appear random or unconnected – whether that be supervising a staff, completing a dissertation or advancing a project in the workplace. I share daily leadership dots on my blog to provide examples of “the string” in action. I use the string philosophy through coaching, consulting and teaching to help others build capacity in themselves and their organizations. I craft analogies and metaphors that help people comprehend complex topics and understand their role in the system. My favorite work involves helping those new to supervision or newly promoted supervisors build confidence and learn the skills necessary to effectively lead their team.
