Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 22MAR10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

While keeping your head down focused on your core business is critically important, leaders must raise their heads up occasionally to see how the world is changing and evolving to ensure continued marketplace viability for the owners, employees and customers.

Companies that thrive lead and dominate during market transitions, e.g., Cisco Systems, Amazon.

Companies in a death spiral, e.g., Blockbuster, Palm, et. al., watch market transitions occur before their very eyes and later wonder how they could have missed the transition.

Thought for the week:

“If you fear rejection, you are running from something. If you fear failure, you are running from something. If you fear ridicule, you are running from something. In this flight, you will never try anything new, risk anything innovative, attempt to reach a new level. Run TOWARD something, not away.” Alan Weiss, Ph.D., Summit Consulting
