Self-confident people don’t need to wrap themselves in complexity and all that clutter that passes for sophistication in business. Self-confident leaders produce simple plans, speak simply, and propose big clear targets.  >>>


The root of many of bureaucracy ills is insecurity. Insecurity makes people resist change because they see change only as a threat, never as an opportunity.


  • Give people a voice, get them talking and listening to and trusting one another.

  • Cultivate self-confidence among your leaders by turning them loose, giving them independence and resources, and encouraging them to take big swings.

  • Provide an atmosphere  Download PowerPoint presentation, pdf e-book that affords employees an opportunity to dream, risk, and win – and ultimately earn self-confidence.



Simplicity is practically an art form with many definitions. To an engineer, it's clean functional designs with fewer parts. It means judging a process not by how sophisticated it is, but how understandable it is to those who must make it work. In marketing it means clear messages and clean proposals to consumers and industrial customers. And, most importantly, on an individual, interpersonal level it takes the form of plain-speaking, directness – honesty.

Simplicity is indispensable to a business leader's most important function: creating and projecting a clear vision.

Simple messages travel faster.

Simple designs reach the market faster.


You can't believe how hard it is for people to be simple, how much they fear being simple.

One of the most difficult things for a manager to do is to reach that all-important threshold of self-confidence in which being simple is comfortable.


  • Urge everyone in the company to have the courage to be simple.

  • Create an atmosphere in the organization where people feel not only free, but obliged to demand clarity and purpose from their leaders.



If you're not fast you can't win. Speed is everything. It is the indispensable ingredient of competitiveness.  >>>


Bureaucracy is terrified by speed and hates simplicity.

People have to think on their feet.
