Good strategy is not enough


November 30th, 2010

If you want to go fast,  go alone. If you want to go far, go together. РAfrican Proverb

Tim Schottman used to work with Starbucks. When he retired he became interested in taking his corporate knowledge and applying that to other causes – such as providing corneal transplants. This talk describes how he learnt the hard way that the best path between point A and point B is not always a straight line.

The bottom line: it’s really about relationships. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to Tim Schottman tell his own story.

Oh, you’re still not convinced that you should invest the time to have conversations and build relationships? Good luck with that then.
