People vs StrategyFriday, November 06, 2015
The people you have in your company are more important than your strategy.
This isn't to say that strategy isn't important. It's merely a matter of not putting the cart before the horse. You can have a great strategy, but if you have a toxic company culture (which in some cases stems from toxic leadership) then all the strategy in the world will not help you.
Great strategy and the wrong people will set you up for a joyless ride. Make getting the right people on board a priority.
