MVP: The pyramid has 8 sides
Most of us have grown up believing that the great pyramid has four sides because that is what we see.
The truth however, is that it has eight sides and they are in plain view.
How does that happen? It’s right in front of us and we don’t see it.
The eight sides weren’t (re)discovered until 1940 when an airplane took a picture from above the pyramid, and this is the critical lesson.
When we examine old places from new perspectives, we can see things that have been in front of us the whole time, but that we never saw before.
Imagine what this could mean for your leadership.
Intention: If you have embraced the idea that organizational culture is a reflection of the degree of alignment (or misalignment) between people, purpose, structures, and resources, then you understand what I’m saying about looking at old things through a new perspective. If this isn’t making sense, email us and we will send you some more info.
