There is one thing to say things or put them on paper, but what you actually DO makes all the difference.
In reality - very often we come across a gap between the two.
There is a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and “know-how” available in companies. So, I am sorry to see good, capable professionals leaving because they don’t feel appreciated and because they don’t feel valued. Using popular buzz words, making empty promises, committing to something, and then acting the opposite way does not make you what you say you are.
How can we make progress if not by acting on what we preach? How can we increase the impact if not by trusting our people to make it work? How can we achieve more and different results if not by supporting our people to shape their future, supporting their ideas, and removing the barriers to success?
We need to walk the talk, we need to make it happen.
