    • “Let’s see, if we could do this, we can do that. If we can do  that, then we can do this. It was a logical sequence. If I hit a  wall, I d back up and then find a path, conceptually, all the  wall I’d back up and then find a path conceptually all the way through to the end. Once you have the path,  conceptually, all the way through to the end you can come  back and start refining, thinking in little steps that will take  you there. Once you get to the point that you can see the  top of the mountain, then you know you can get there.” p , y y g

    • “The job of the manager is an  enabling, not a directive job…  enabling not a directive job coaching, and not direction, is  the first quality of leadership  now. Get the barriers out of the  now Get the barriers out of the way to let people do the things  y p p g they do well.”
