Faint Signals Matter

Most warning signs are not in your face, flashing wildly in different colours to get your attention. As a leader you have to keep your eyes ahead as well as pay attention to what is happening in your periphery. Often, when a brand loses its lustre or deteriorates, the signs and signals were there long before the demise. What may seem insignificant or ‘normal’ could actually be a warning for troubled times. As a leader you have to take note of these signals and respond. Those vague signals can be tough to see. But if you have your head down these signals become impossible to detect. You cannot be a successful Transformational Leader if you don’t implement a radar system to catch these faint signals.
