In this episode I focus on the different between Policies and Guidelines. Go ahead and listen in:

One feels really rigid and the other one we like to make rigid but it really is Grey.

Policy has the feeling of the Run DMC lyric,

It’s like that and that’s the way it is

Guidelines on the other hand gives you room to play, make decisions and look to them if you find yourself disoriented. They are more like the Jay-Z lyric,

Just know I chose my own fate; I drove by the fork in the road and went straight

As you are out there building your personal brand to have more impact at work, don’t confuse policies with guidelines.

They were both put there for a reason (find out why) and assume they both can and will change.

The only question is, “Will you be leading the change or just impacted by it. The choice is yours.” [Tweetable]

I have a deep desire to help spread entrepreneurial thinking as the solutions to many of our problems today. I am a project kind of guy who loves to get things started. When I'm not in search of contract work (projects) that I can do during the nights and weekends I can be found working as a mild mannered Digital Content Manager for Babson Executive Education.
