Leadership in a Koi Pond

The ornamental gold, white, and orange fish have fascinated for centuries. Found everywhere from emperors’ gardens to Las Vegas casinos, these incredible fish grow to over three feet in length.

To grow large, koi need food, warm water and a very large habitat.

Food and warm water…got it.

But a large habitat? To achieve maximum growth, each koi requires 250 gallons of space!

Leaders create habitats in their own organizations. And like the koi pond they set the limit. Organizations are limited by their leaders. Limited by vision and the leader’s own personal and professional growth…each input either restricts or expands the habitat.

As a leader, are you expanding the habitat for you and your team?
