Some thoughts that have occurred to me in the past few weeks as far as when to hang out the sign (or “when to say No Way!)…
–No Vacancy–when it comes to making declarations, decisions or policies simply because it’s what they want to hear
–No Vacancy–for taking the Easy-in-the-Short-Run and Deal-with-it-Later leadership
–No Vacancy–for putting off questions, discussions and decisions that are crying for attention.
Here’s the deal with hanging out No Vacancy signs–everyone, well most everyone, knows that the No Vacancy sign really means “don’t bother me,” “don’t rock the boat,” or “I don’t want to deal with this now (ever).”
So, let’s flip it around. Let’s take down the No Vanancy Signs…and try “Welcome” or “Newly Envisioned” or “Ask Me” signs instead.
