Shot 79: COW PATH, DEER PATH

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 2 months ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

AND SHEEP PATH, HORSE PATH…I could go on.  What’s with all the paths?  The natural way.  The easiest way.  The shortest way.  Wait.  What’s in common?  Answer:  The way.  I like knowing I’m on the way, and I will get there without the difficulty of bush whacking and its potential pitfalls.
Yes, paths get you there.  Someone or something has gone before; the route works.  Hey, leaders, the proven trail has merit; it’s proven.  Oh sure, creativity is good and unique approaches are often profitable.  They can be added in.  But to get through a challenge, to win at business, to beat the odds, identify a path and follow it.
