Is it safe?

I have always been fascinated by the contradiction between the commonly held belief that our business decisions should be rational and the weight of evidence which seems to indicate that this is far from the truth. From what I understand, we reach decisions before we are even aware that we have reached a decision and then we invest effort in being able to post-rationalise that decision…

D is for difference

  A great leader, in my mind, possesses the ability to split from norms and express or be guided by their own contrasting convictions.

I Want To Be Led By Those That Have Done Their Work
