Found a leadership blog in an unexpected place

We were chatting at home about some products for clearing drains (long story), and my other half noted she’d seen some interesting and apparently new products from CLR.  CLR, if you don’t know it, stands for Calcium Lime Rust remover (their signature product), but they have more than that.

I had a look for the products to see if this was a brand extension…and got distracted by a really good management blog from the CEO.

In particular, there’s a good posting on change:

The key take-away: always be open to new ideas from new places.

Cheers,

Dak

The trap of being established, experienced and…entrenched

I’ve been thinking about executives and teams I’ve worked with over the years, and just how easy it is to get stuck, but find comfort in experience.

We’ve all heard the line “one year of experience, ten times.” It’s insulting, and facile, and dangerously close to the truth.

We must always be learning, always open to new ideas and the possibility of being wrong. Always.

Or else we haven’t had 10+ years of experience, we’ve had a much smaller number several times.
