"Leaders can't impose their values on organizational members. Instead they must be proactive in involving people in the process of creating shared values."It is very easy as a leader to have tunnel vision and not see other perspectives when implementing change. We often see the end result in our minds and assume other people see it too. I think about all the initiatives that we force feed teachers and the so called "silver bullet" programs. In the end we need to involve them more into our decision making to develop trust. (thanks @samfrancera)
"Shared values are the result of listening, appreciating, building concensus, and practicing conflict resolution."
"Unity is forged, not forced."
