Is good really good enough anymore?

donhornsby's curator insight, October 14, 2013 10:21 AM

(From the article): At your company, you are the intergalactic traveler. Your company is the inside and the marketplace is the outside. It's your job as CEO to see opportunities others do not. Most of your organization (with the exception of sales people) tends to focus internally, and it's difficult for them to shift gears to focus externally. Therefore, you are to fill that void. This is not to say that you should not engage and intently listen to your internal employees. This simply means you ultimately are the one who must make the decisions.

Sarah Haywood's curator insight, October 14, 2013 11:14 AM
