It's Something in the Air

Dr. Foster Mobley // Business, Quotables, Wisdom Leading

Q: Are you ready to leave the B.S. on the farm where it belongs? Can you smell leadership B.S.? Livestock farms are an important industry with honorable work. But, let's face it, they smell. And, it's not the wildflowers in the field. However, if you ask folks who work on a farm how they stand the smell they'll generally say, "What smell?" If an outsider sat in on meetings with your team would they be tempted to ask, "How can you stand all that B.S.?" Would you answer, "What B.S.?" In many industries the lack of authenticity present in leadership and teams has become so commonplace we're no longer able to smell it. Find a way to clear the air and take a deep breath assessment of your organization.
