Early morning thoughts on hype versus strategy

Hype is a danger to leadership because it can become organisational doublespeak – sounding excited becomes compulsory regardless of results.

Hype is no substitute for strategy. In fact talking it up can obscure the reality that nothing is happening. #faithnotfake
