Inspirational Fail

Inspirational posters and Instagram posts typically fail us. That’s because wise words do not transmit wisdom, they only coax us toward wisdom if we’re ready.  Unless we’re buzzing high enough, we will hear or read wise things and miss the importance or, worse, totally misinterpret the meaning.

This means we need to raise our buzz to understand and use wisdom.

And it means we cannot expect others to change just because we’ve laid out the logic, made the case, showed the way, or otherwise implored them. We can, however, influence them by raising our buzz, leading by the example of our behavior, learning what makes a win for them, and connecting our wins to theirs.

Be wise, good leader.
