Are we called to be signs of contradiction?

All are entitled to be dynamic in life, few grant themselves permission.

This post starts off spiritually but quickly addresses the business leadership application.

Pastor Ennis who recently celebrated 50 years as a Priest, caught many of us off guard yesterday at Mass. He said:

 “We are called to be signs of contradiction.”

To be a thought-provoking apostle.

Immediately thought of the business leader’s job.

To be a though-provoking leader.

To rattle the cage of everyone she leads.

Because if employees keep thinking the same way they always do and expect consistent improvements, or even a breakthrough, then we don’t need that leader.

We don’t need that leader because that leader isn’t leading.
