The Dog Barks and the Caravan Passes
(Read this post in 23 seconds)
The skeptical voices. The strained body language. The questioning emails.
If you’re trying to get anything worthwhile done, you can expect the voices, body language and emails (and more!). And if what you’re doing involves change, multiply them exponentially.
The voices, body language and emails won’t stop you unless you let them. I’m not suggesting that you ignore them – that could turn a bark into a bite. But often the barks are just expressions of fear, uncertainty or loss. In that case, connect, listen and engage. But don’t stop.
Keep building your caravan and your leadership so that together you’re unstoppable. Zigzag here or there if you must. But keep moving.
