Are you sinking, missing or rocking the boat?

I’m a sucka for a good maritime metaphor so check out my Weekly Leader post about Bill Taylor’s post on his Practically Radical blog over at the HarvardBusiness blogs. Taylor was a founder of Fast Company magazine and author of business bestseller Mavericks at Work and always thoughtful writer and entertaining speaker on leadership. Instead of repeating it here, please check it out over at Weekly Leader.

One thought on “Are you sinking, missing or rocking the boat?”

  1. Maritime metaphors are so prevalent, especially in business writing and journalism, that I find they often clutter up genuine Google searches on sailing-related terms. I long for the day when someone develops a search engine that distinguishes metaphoric and literal uses of a word so that I can do a search on phrases like “sink the boat” or “rock the boat” and select an option for “literal uses only”.
