The Thrill of Breakthroughs

There is something quite thrilling in the can-do power a team of brilliant hard working executives can create when they coalesce. The three comments below capture that exact sense. Most teams operate at a sub-optimal level and miss the greater knowledge and wisdom available for them at a higher level of collaboration. High level of trust and breakthrough collaboration make the impossible possible and the hard to achieve easier. Last week, in our strategy summit with a global team I witnessed and experienced the power of creative collaboration and it was a thrill. Here is what they say:

Greg Shoemaker, VP General Manager – Hewlett Packard

Wolfgang Zenger, Director Hewlett Packard

Jason Pollock, Hewlett Packard

Seeing The Invisible Layers

Do you see the invisible work created around you? Are you fully aware of the invisible layers of your own work?

This podcast draws your awareness to the invisible work of your endeavors. That’s where the transformative power lies; this is where the quality and essence of something is fashioned and preserved.

You enjoy a red apple you picked up at the produce section but you do not see the tree and all the hands that touched the apple to get it to the store for you. “But I have my own apple tree that grows in my garden” you say. And there, too, you don’t see the roots underground holding the tree in place.

The invisible work is the essence of change and transformation. All great endeavors and all great success stories had great invisible work behind them. Discover the point of leverage and engage in the invisible work you are here to create!
