The Red Queen in Through the Looking Glass was very wise at times, understanding how fast you have to run simply to stay in the same place, let alone the additional effort required to move forward. (Though, clearly, we don’t recommend her approach to managing HR issues by chopping off heads!)
Unlike HRH (who we can probably agree was not the best listener), we all recognise that in #businessschool discussions about vision, mission and values, when identifying strengths and when reviewing strategic goals for different departments, taking time to listen to and really focus on the changing needs of your key stakeholders is crucial to making the best decisions.
