Let the spirit MOOOOOOVE you

“Ten People who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.” ~Napoleon Bonaparte

 It takes bravery to speak out in a direction opposite the group’s momentum.  Bravery to say “you know what, this is the wrong thing… and here’s why”.  My Alma Mater, William & Mary recently changed their tag line… “Be Revolutionary”.  That fits, as leaders must be brave enough to speak up, manage up, and risk the derision of the 10,000 who are happily moving in a different direction, like a herd.  If you think the herd is moving in the wrong direction, make your Mooooove.  J

 Speaking of noise… The guy in the comic sot of looks like Napoleon, too.
