The Business Guillotine – Only brave people can set ambitious targets

How is it in your company? Are your heads chopped off if you set ambitious targets and don’t reach them? If your company’s performance culture is characterized by “head chopping,” you will most likely have experienced how people do not take the trouble of establishing demanding targets.

Brave people should be applauded and recognized for their efforts aiming at far better results. One brave man in this category that I often think of is the former President John F. Kennedy. In the 60’s he set an unthinkable target for the United States of America.

Within this decade we will send a man to the moon and return him safely.

This was one of mankind’s greatest achievements, and it was the result of a man’s courage to set ambitious targets.
