has an interesting comic this morning on his blog. See what you think:
So many times, we want our leaders to think outside the box.
Outside the box thinking is great.
And that’s a big but.
Do we allow our people to really think outside the box without consequences?
Do YOU have the freedom to think out the box without being hurled so far outside the box for sharing your thoughts that you are completely dazzled to the point that you’ll never leave the box again.
Outside the box thinking is great until you share your ideas only to find that you’re squarely looking at everyone else still inside the box.
QUESTION: When was the last time you thought ‘outside the box’ and shared your idea? How was it received. Did it make you want to think creatively in the future, or was it a negative experience?
I’d love to hear your thoughts…
