Ron Karr – The Velocity Mindset

Ron Karr, author of The Velocity Mindset: How Leaders Eliminate Resistance, Gain Buy-in, and Achieve Better Results – Faster, encourages the reader to examine what “velocity” means to them. While the word that comes to mind for many is “speed,” he cautions that “If that’s all we have, then we get burned out.” Velocity is, as defined by physics, ‘speed with direction.’ In business terms, this relates to when people aren’t really grounded on the purpose they’re trying to achieve. As a result, they get involved in tasks that don’t make sense and are not purpose-driven. Karr warns that it’s critical to have a clear vision of what our purpose is in order to succeed.
