Flat Squirrel Syndrome? Doesn’t have to be your affliction!
By David Rankin / January 5, 2017 / Osborne Insights Blogs
A phrase I saw displayed in poster format in a Toronto firm’s conference room sparked some thought.  It said “The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn’t make a decision”. We have all seen the poor squirrel confronted on the busy roadway facing big decisions with sometimes fatal results. Perhaps we share the same dilemma in business?
