You Can't Grow If You're Planted In The Wrong Place

You Can’t Grow If You’re Planted In The Wrong Place

Older folks admonished me, “Grow where you’re planted.” The wisest of old folks who surrounded me influenced me to be careful where I was willing to plant myself. They knew the soil of my life would matter. It would determine how strong I’d be able to grow. Today, join me and Lisa as we talk about culture and fit.

No matter how good you are, if you're in the wrong place, you're worthless

Take care to plant yourself in soil that’s ideal for your professional and personal growth. As a leader, do your best to create the right environment to grow others. If the forest of high-performing people isn’t flourishing, look at what you can do to improve the conditions – for yourself and for others. 

Be well. Do good. Grow great!
