Comment on Great Leaders Think Simply by jbeisty http://jonathanbecher.com/2014/09/22/great-leaders-think-simply/#comment-3012 Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:19:44 +0000 http://jonathanbecher.com/?p=4474#comment-3012 Great post. It is very easy to get lost in the “noise” and to become distracted from what is important. As a leader, I often work to help my teams work through this problem and one thing that strikes me is how often they already know what should be done. If you give them time to think through it, almost always comes out. I find it critical to make time for reflection – first thing every day and at regular intervals during down time. If you are constantly on the treadmill and don’t poke your head up to really consider the bigger picture, it is all too easy to stay lost in complexity. Thanks for the reminder JB!
