Supervisory Leadership Question

What do you think about the new technique of microintervention?

"Microinterventions" are just a fancy name for the small changes that every good supervisory leader knows are the keys to good management and development of any kind.

Even though the Apollo missions were actually off course most of the time, they got to the moon because they kept making small course corrections, microinterventions, if you will. See my newsletter on "The Apollo Principles."

And every good supervisory leader knows that problems, like dinosaurs, are much easier to deal with when they're small. The basic principle is that small changes, corrections, and improvements can add up to big results. I wrote about that in another newsletter titled "The Dinosaur Principle."
