Carpe Factum: Botox and the Organization

Short post today…but powerful (at least I think so). Great post over at Carpe Factum today titled “Are You Botox-ing Your Organization?“.

Not much I can add to what Timothy has already said other than to ask you the following question:

Do you allow your employees/teams to fail?  Do they know they have the right to fail?  If not, you aren’t really allowing innovation and change and you are “Botox-ing your organization”.

Eric – thanks for the link – great additional question to ask. Fear of failure holds so many potentially great organizations and employees back.

I think I will start spreading that term "Botox-ing the organization" Its like the week link of the organization.
