Early Warning Systems

Leaders need to develop better early warning systems, akin to skating with your head up, which is something young boys and girls are taught to do from the time they begin to play hockey. It’s too bad this same competency is not carried over into the business world, because some of the most important game changing moments, some of the most violent hits and career-ending business injuries occur when your head is down and you get sideswiped by someone or something your peripheral vision did not pick up.
