Leadership Challenge: Being Asked To Do the Impossible

It wouldn’t be the first time that I have been asked to deliver the impossible, either achieve a result that was too high, or a deadline that was too tight.

Now I have to say I am a big fan of big bold beautiful goals, and pushing teams to achieve new limits.

But there is a huge difference between achieving a new level, one that has never been done before, and trying to achieve the impossible.

I know there is no such thing as try, there is only do and not do, but when we faced with the impossible we are faced with some tough choices. Do we proceed knowing that success is beyond us or do we look to change the objective and make it a little less impossible.

In this video, I share some tips and advice that I always, always follow.
