Controlling The Crazies

Recently I met with David Williams who has been instrumental in building Geldards into a leading East Midlands law firm.

Among numerous insights that David generously shared with me was his observation that you will employ people who are crazy and people who are sane. His job, he reflected, has been to make sure that every crazy person in his organisation was paired with a sane person.

Putting crazies with crazies is a recipe for chaos. But putting the sane with the equally sane means surefire stagnation.

I’m all in favour of giving my organisation a crazy edge, but I don’t think our business would work if we were completely bonkers.

About Andy Jervis

Welcome to my blog site. I've spent 30 years building a business - Chesterton House Group - designed to help people to achieve financial freedom, so that's my main interest and the core focus of my writings. True financial freedom isn't just about having enough money to do the things you want, it's about having a great relationship with money so that you can live in balance and get the most out of life. The best advice I ever had was to 'live each day as though it were your last, but plan as though you'll live forever.' I hope you enjoy the blog. Andy
