Thought For The Week

TFTW160316

Some leaders surround themselves with Yes Men – people who always agree with the boss.

The problem with Yes Men is that they can’t think for themselves.

That’s why every team needs a No Man or No Woman.

He or she is someone who thinks for themselves and cares enough to voice their concerns.

They are often seen as negative thinkers because they see problems that others can’t.

Nurture these people because they can save you from making big mistakes.

If you don’t have a No Man or No Woman, allot the role to someone.

Tell them it’s their job to find fault in your plans, even if they don’t believe it deep down.

When everything in your head is sunny, it’s their job to rain on your parade.
