Central theme for March 11, 2021
Common IDEAS have the power to broaden perspectives, change thinking and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious to look into:
Mike Hayes on delegating and an insight into why we lead:
“We don’t need to use the greatest authority to which we are entitled. Our organizations will be better served by training the people below us to one day take our place. The more we can pass on the chain of command, the better equipped our organizations will be with more capable leaders. ”

Mark Thomson on Leading Transformation:
“You won’t succeed as a CEO trying to impose a set of ideas or a new culture. Day 1. It just doesn’t work. It must be owned. It’s more about getting it out of the organization than pushing it in, and that meant trying, step-by-step, to initiate a deeper conversation about the future. ”
