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.
