Your Way?

There was the right way...the wrong way...and Rick’s way.  In every case, it had better be Rick’s way. Which is why Rick found it increasingly hard to recruit others to his projects.

Carol, on the other hand, could stay open to ideas.  She collaborated. In the truest sense of the word, Carol was a colleague. Her coworkers jockeyed for places on her teams, and her projects frequently drew the company’s brightest and best.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Push hard enough and usually you can force things your way. Trouble is...your way may ultimately lead nowhere. So what will it be?  Your way or the best way?—in the high calling of our daily work.
