Henry Kissinger Leadership Quote of the Day…Getting from A to B

The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been.

— Henry Kissinger
Where is your team right now?  Can you draw a map that details these things:
  • Where are you right now?
  • Where do you want to go? (The goal)
  • Are there more important or more logical “stops along the way”

Now discover how you get there.  Determining these “stops along the way” is critical.  A journey is almost never a non stop flight from A to B; it has points A1, A2, A3… all along the way.  And B itself should never be the end, it is a stop along the way to C, and to D, and to E…

Ask everyone on your team to take 5 minutes a map this same exercise.  It’s interesting to have the group decide point A and point B, but then let them be original and determine the path between the two on their own.  Share the differences between each scenario and determine, as a group, the best way to get there.  Use something from everyone’s idea.

Happy travels!
