I have been attempting to prepare for organisational change and so have been reading a variety of materials over the last little while. It is always difficult to get the balance right as you do not want to preempt the work of others but in my reading I have come across a plethora of quotes that have worked for me in a host of ways. Some quotes from Joel Manby that have resonated with me.
“A leader may decide something, but the whole organization needs to execute it”
“Don’t confuse disagreement with conflict”
“The unfortunate news is that the more senior you are in your organization, the more difficult it is to get the truth about how you’re performing”
“organisations talk about values, but few truly integrate those values into how leaders are evaluated and chosen and how organisational results are measured.”
