Here are some important models and a few metaphors for companies. How do you build a “mental construct” and how can it help you? What is meta-cognition? What should a corporate board of directors really do? What does being a corporate officer really mean at your corporation? What is the difference between a company President versus a project leader, a Treasurer versus a bookkeeper, and a Secretary versus an office administrator? I used to say that your biggest risk is what you don’t know. I now say that your biggest risk is what you think you know that simply isn’t true. When was the last time you got “off the dance floor” and “on the balcony”. Too busy dancing to learn these important differences? Don’t wait until the music stops. Start now. I am interested in your comments.
