Many organisations spend an enormous amount of time focusing on small, trivial issues and working around problems instead of tackling them head on. Focusing on the small issues is a great way to procrastinate and make yourself feel like you’re doing something.
In this episode I talk about why this happens, how you can tell if it’s happening to you and then, of course, some ways to help you change your mindset and give you the courage to address that elephant in the room.
