The Most Important Question: Why?

July 13, 2011


I had planned a longer post with some reflections on a process improvement project I have been working on.  However, the same project is contributing to longer hours at work and taking time away from writing.  Rather than wait until the weekend, I thought I would do a quick blog post and share a video that is related to what I have been doing for the past week and a half:  explaining or finding out why.  Almost all of my conversations, and not just with that particular project, have involved that most important question:  Why? Why are things done that way?  Why was that decision made?  Why are we going that direction?

It reminded me of a video that has been very popular among TED fans and people I follow in leadership conversations:  Simon Sinek’s How great leaders inspire action.  Enjoy the video and I welcome your thoughts and comments.
