MAKE 2011 YOUR YEAR TO RETHINK EVERYTHING... then make changes.
My favorite topic, again - the importance of constant change inside CPA firms.
- Quote about trying to change things inside an organization – “the role of big companies is to turn great people into mediocre organizations.”
- Quote describing people trying to lead change: “We are like earnest doctors with willing patients engaged in utter bullshit.”
- Quote describing leading an organization during fast-changing times: “floating in lava in a wooden boat.”
"By 'radical,' I understand one who goes too far; by 'conservative,' one who does not go far enough; by 'reactionary,' one who won't go at all." - - Woodrow Wilson
