Counterintuitive Principles of Leadership – Week 21

Consultants can help but are not the answer!

  1. There are no quick fixes.
  2. Beware of the “canned solution.”  I never heard a consultant say, “I don’t know.”
  3. Consultants have more time to think – but thinking is the key (step back, step forward).
  4. In the end, you have to do it yourself.
