The Formula for Failure (Level 3/7)
Let’s look at an all-too-common scenario amongst most visionary leaders. The leader thinks up that Game-changing Idea. The leader pitches Game-changing Idea to his team. The meeting gets pumped to see how Game-changing Idea is going to change everything. And in as little as 1 month, Game-changing Idea is dead.
What went wrong with this scenario? Who dropped the ball? Was Game-changing Idea really not that great after all? The core issue here is that both the leader and the team believed a popular deception– thinking ahead is not the same as acting ahead. We’ve all been deceived like this before whish is why a great idea is nothing without a solid plan.
