In this REWIND episode, Mark and Tom Flick discuss moving faster with less chaos. “We must stop, slowdown and think,” says Tom. When companies are too focused on efficiencies and relying on processes, organizations lose intentionality. These automated approaches to life and work invite chaos. To be nimble and fast, leaders have to create the right kind of speed, and Tom helps folks develop that clean speed.
Tom suggests building 2 to 3 hours a week to: think, ponder and reflect. Drop everything, let it fall to the ground…then determine what you want to pick up again and in which order. That clarity is found when for Mark in mountains of Sun Valley.
Tom notes he’s not about his agenda when it comes to clients, he’s about theirs. This approach allows him to stay fresh and innovative. He comes to learn about them about you. In a world that’s moving fast, we need speed not just from the top leaders, but form the mid-level leaders. This organizational speed is what Tom delivers in this episode.
