Reasons and Excuses; Organisations and Individuals

Most organizations need a good reason to do something new.

 

All they need is a flimsy excuse to not do something for the first time.

 

And they often need a lawsuit to stop doing something they’re used to.

How does this translate to individual managers? My guess would be pretty much the same. Perhaps:

Most managers need a good reason to do something new.

 

All they need is a flimsy excuse to not do something for the first time.

 

And they often need an appraisal or a disciplinary to stop doing something they’re used to.

What could you change about the way you manage that might have the largest impact on performance?

What stops you?

What would it take for you to make the change?
