Is the Cheshire Cat Running Your Company?

You may remember the Cheshire Cat from Lewis Carroll’s story, Alice In Wonderland. One of Cheshire Cat’s most important lessons for Alice was, “if you don’t know where you’re going then any road will get you there.” That’s an absolutely true statement and a vital lesson for business owners and leaders to consider.
