Thoughts from this episode:
Some say that leaders can either read the room they are in, or adjust the room they are in.
We are called not only to be a thermometer, but to be a thermostat, an agent of change. You need both.
A thermometer doesn’t do anything about the situation, it just understands the situation.
A thermostat regulates the culture back to what it should be.
Thermometer’s are loose, thermostats are connected
It’s a lot easier to be a thermostat, and it’s a lot more intentional to be a thermostat.
