Eleanor Roosevelt said,
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
I did a workshop on Staff Meetings Everyone Wants to Attend. After the presentation, I had each table plan a training for their staff. At many of the tables the attendees were discussing ideas and getting excited about sharing those ideas with others. They were fired up, sharing even more ideas with each other and creating new ways to get those ideas to spread.
At some tables, however, they were discussing how they were afraid their staff wouldn't listen, learn or like it.
Guess which businesses are likely to be more successful in the long run?
PS If you have a great idea, I want to hear it! (I can talk ideas all night long)
