With all due respect.
Row gently down the stream, unless you want to change things. Significant change is seldom gentle, and usually accomplished by swimming upstream, against the prevailing currents.
Yes, row your boat. Don’t row somebody else’s boat, and don’t let anyone else row your boat for you. None of us want to be a cog in someone else’s machine.
Gently? When you argue with, or question reality, you tend to find new solutions and fresh ways of thinking.
Is it stressful? Absolutely! But leaders do not find that anxious, they find it incredibly exciting. To empower others to exceed beyond their expectations, to be able to share their growth and accomplishment, to help instill confidence, this is what learning and leadership is all about!
We need more of these….
After all, even a dead fish floats gently downstream.
And so it goes…
