How Do You Move An Elephant?

How do you move an elephant? Entice it with it's own desire.

Then once it is moving, you nudge it or encourage it to change directions. But really, an elephant is going to go where they what want to go. You can't turn an elephant on a dime, it takes time to have it change directions. A series of small changes has a huge impact to the direction of the elephant. 

Tom landry said it best, "Leadership is getting someone to do what they don't want to do, to achieve what they want to achieve.”

A good leader can help the elephant get where it wants to go as if the elephant wanted to go there by itself. 

Good leaders are always in front, great leaders are in front, invisible to the process but visible to the people.
