“The single biggest challenge to any organization is the constant cloud of fear and doubt that swirls around the heads of the people involved. As a leader, your job is to hold fast to the big picture, to keep seeing in your mind’s eye, with crystal clarity, where it is you’re going—that place that right at this moment exists only in your mind’s eye. And to keep seeing that, even when nobody else does.
“Especially when nobody else does.
“Your people count on you to do this. It’s the biggest job you have.”
– It’s Not About You, by Bob Burg and John David Mann
