Why, Oh Why?
Why must I screech at "staffers"? Why must I beg them to take their rightful place in the sun? Well, too many seem to be content to be "good, conscientious professionals," rather than ... IN-YOUR-FACE-TRANSFORMATIONAL-LEADERS.
Here's how I not too gently put it to groups of HR and IS/IT Execs recently:
"This is an important speech! Why? You are important people! And why the hell do I have to persuade you of that? Get the %$^&&* chip off your shoulders! Stand tall! DARE TO BE 'INSANELY GREAT.' Act like the stalwart heroes you truly are! Damn it!"
