What’s a BFO?

What’s a BFO?  It’s a Blinding Flash of the Obvious.

Recently, I was in the middle of a lively discussion on the things that keep employees from getting actively involved with finding solutions to improve Employee morale, Customer satisfaction and Financial results.

One person said, “Language barriers.  I may speak with an accent, but I don’t think with an accent”.

I loved hearing that.


Because it taught me something.  Something I already knew, but subconsciously forget.

I thanked that person later.

Walt Disney used to say, “I never know where our next great idea is going to come from”.

I was gently reminded of exactly what Walt meant, and how that applies leaders in his organization.

Teaching often seems so one sided.  It’s not.  I’m living proof.
