One Degree of Separation

Often the difference between success and failure is a matter of degrees. Change Leadership requires, in the best of circumstances, an enormous commitment and takes a huge effort on the part of management. Not to be overlooked is the individual commitment to change at all levels. Led from the top, every extra effort, every extra degree of commitment makes the difference.

At 211F degrees, water is very hot and you can make tea.
Add just one degree, water boils, and you can power a train with the steam.

The key to get the train moving is to lead an organization to not only provide that extra degree of effort and commitment, but to make cetain the effort is focused down the track in a common direction.
