Pay attention

Recently I spoke to a leader whose organization was in the midst of a downward trend in numbers. In fact, a rather dramatic decrease over the past five years.

For the most part….this group doesn’t recognize the downside that is taking place. It seems to be business as usual….nothing that is urgent.

While this group won’t completely go out of existence….its numbers and future impact will be minimal.

In 1982 John Naisbitt wrote….“Megatrends –  Ten New Directions for Transforming Lives”….a best seller that took into account the need to recognize future trends.

Any good leader needs to pay attention to trends….the first comment when a sales rep walked in our front door –

“What’s new?”
