Great leaders learn to R&D effectively. No, not Research & Develop. Ripoff & Duplicate!
I learned this concept from Cameron Herold, former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, and have applied it with success over the years. There are so many great ideas in the world—listen to thought leaders, read blogs and business books. Take the ideas that resonate with you, modify it to fit your company and culture, and apply the concept.
Got great ideas of your own that have worked well? Share them with the world, so others can R&D them!
