“I tap dance to work…” – Warren Buffet


We can have practical tools as a leader however the mind-set behind them turns them into actions with a legacy, otherwise they get lost into being a management response.

The Shoes Story

Many years ago two salesmen were sent by a British shoe manufacturer to Africa to investigate and report back on market potential.

The first salesman reported back, “There is no potential here – nobody wears shoes.”

The second salesman reported back, “There is massive potential here – nobody wears shoes.”


This simple short story provides one of the best examples of how a single situation may be viewed in two quite different ways – someone who has a fixed mind-set or some-one has a growth mind-set.

With all the snow and cold weather – pay heed to the Warren Buffet quote – make sure you dance to the office everyday this week.  It is only a short one after all…
