Jim Collins - Commitment - Passion - Confidence - Motivational - Thinking - Work

Jim Collins - Management - Famous - Leadership - Great

We must reject the idea.. well-intentioned, but dead wrong.. that the primary path to greatness in the social sectors is to become "more like a business." Most businesses.. like most of anything else in life.. fall somewhere between mediocre and good.
Jim Collins - Society - Business - Wrong - Ideas - Great - Good
