For me, time is a precious resource and I know I am not alone. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and not take the time to connect with suppliers and customers. This week, in the midst of a grueling work schedule, I decided to show up at a trade show in Chicago (a three-hour drive from my office) where our customers were exhibiting. Prior to this show we created a variety of videos for them to use on their booths. In addition, we were going to send crews on site to videotape future communications. It would have convenient to finish the work, send off the videos and let my employees do the rest.

For entrepreneurs, harnessing the power of possibility takes an idea and turns it into a business enterprise. For teams, leveraging possibility creates an output that is greater than the sum of its parts.

This mindset can unlock systemic challenges, overcome lingering obstacles and even manufacturer brand new business opportunities.
