I typically expect that things will go well, and I'm often surprised. My outlook is typically optimistic. Yet our world is dysfunctional, and things rarely work without a glitch.
Earlier this week, I was listening to a news commentary reviewing the efforts made to reduce the impact of the recession. There have been unexpected repercussions to just about every initiative. Should that be a big surprise? We live in a dysfunctional world.
Yet you, as a leader, are tasked with making progress where you work. Wow, that's tough! How do you persevere in a dysfunctional world? Perhaps this week's article, “Your Role in Our Dysfunctional World,” can provide some encouragement.
