Understanding Business From The Front Lines

Most profit is made or lost on the front lines of business, not in the corner office. To really understand how the company ticks, leaders at all levels need to get out of their office and walk the floor. Only through firsthand observation, questioning and listening can meaningful change and innovation occur.

“Great leaders understand something that is often lost in today’s world of global connectivity, where a surfeit of data is accessible with a few keystrokes. Computer-generated reports certainly play an important role in management, but the critical, visceral insight needed for effective leadership can come only from firsthand contact. The best executives get out of their of­fices and away from their computer screens to observe their frontline employees, competitors, customers, and suppliers on the job. ” Source: See for Yourself
