From Jim Collins' book, Good To Great, comes this fantastic quote by Walter Bruckart:
The top 5 factors that led his company from from mediocrity to excellence:
“One would be people, two would be people, three would be people, four would be people, and five would be ............................. people." !
And Gary Hamel says, "you can’t build a company that is fit for the future unless it is fit for human beings".
And then my favourite, from Margaret Wheatley:
"People support what they create and resist that which they are excluded from".
With these wonderful thoughts in mind, good luck for 2010 people! Let's make our organisations fit for human beings, and get our people involved in co-creating successful organisations.
