Leadership is about…..

Many books give us the answers! Do we listen or learn? How many do we need to read to get it?

It has never been about the reading. It has always been about the adopting, about the doing.

The Great American W.Edwards Deming gave us “The 14 points to lead us “Out of Crisis”

His frustration? His own fellow Americans did not listen so he had to go to those who would and did it!

Americans did not listen so he went to Japan!

The rest we know…

He demonstrated what was needed to transform American business and economy.

He said this some 40 years ago!

“The overwhelming challenge that faces the United States today is the need to regain competitive position in international commerce. America in fact continues to lose ground in manufacturing and service markets….”

“Management in time will be judged not by the quarterly dividend, but by plans and innovation with the aim to stay in business…”

There are probably half a million books on leadership and more every year.

There are some that have already been written that we need to learn and then adopt.

This is one of them…

  1. Peter – I have my copy of Deming’s “The New Economics” on my bookshelf and have pulled it off and referred to it MANY times over the years. Circa 1994/5 I participated in some extended quality training. Still recall the a-ha” moments for the group when we did Demings’ Red Bead” experiment.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
