Say what you will about Tim Tebow, believe what you want to believe about him because I am not here to sell you on him. I am here to talk about a lesson that became painfully apparent for those watching when he was cut by the New York Jets this off season. It is a lesson to which those of us in the corporate world should pay close attention.

In one of my last posts on my previous blog site, Stuck In The Middle, I talked about the changing landscape for most organizations and in particular, the impact change is having on our field as HR/talent practitioners.

And so today, I am here to ask you, what have you done to support this change? I am talking beyond just supporting the business by talking about the change. I want specifics. I want to know how you’re helping to push our field forward and I want to know what you’re strategy is for moving people through the inevitable change and how you’re helping them cope.

Journey Healing Centers are world-class locations that surround you with warmth and serenity to help a person heal from the curse of alcoholism and drug addiction. Started by a former victim of addiction and his wife, who are not venture capitalists, clinical psychologists, or serial entrepreneurs, these rehabilitation centers are hugely more successful compared to the averages. Josh Lannon’s example is not a "success by landing into the lap of opportunity" story. It is a story of "success by design".

When a 75 year old man commits suicide in front of a speeding train because he lost a big chunk of his billions, while still holding on to $8 billions, it makes you feel quite certain that Heaven and Hell are not interglactic locations but rather our own states of minds. I bet what he left behind would have made the heavens (at least momentarily) for a lot of people. But at least the old man got out of his misery, even if it was all self created.

The main job of business leaders, whether they be CEOs or entrepreneurs managing firms of varying sizes, is to take good decisions, or more appropriately make the right choices for their business. The kind and combination of choices they make determines the success or failure of their organization. Strategy development involves making choices and so does execution. But the rapidly changing business landscape of most industries frequently overtakes that ability of individual CEOs, for they are after all human beings with limitations in experience, knowledge and thought processes.
