These two concepts are related, but not the same. Excellence is superior to success, and leaders must encourage their followers to rise to that higher level.


Also On Jems Thumb

Lead with Clear Goals

An organization can be very efficient (doing things right), but not be effective (doing the right things). Many organizations fail because, although they're doing what they do extremely well, they're doing the wrong things.

Synergism is defined as cooperative action of discrete agencies such that the total effect is greater than the sum of the two effects taken independently.
