Are You Tapping the Fear or the Spark?

There is a fear within each of us. Tap it and you’ll get hurried, harried, and short-lived results. Further attempts to mine this source become ever more costly, unpredictable, and ultimately doomed.

There is a spark within each of us. Tap it and you’ll get long-lasting, wonderful results.

Of course, mining sparks is not a panacea. It requires hard work. We must throw out all the leadership tools used to tap fear. In their place we need a compelling clarity of purpose, a commitment to win-win collaboration with all involved, high-buzz thinking, and systems and approaches that support us delivering together that purpose well.

Worth it.
