Harvey Saying #4 – The Drip

Drip_drip
"Drip Method" – Probably my most memorable saying from HSG was the "drip" method – Burry Foss.
This is the gradual introduction of new ideas to clients when their
readiness for change is low.  I have found it to be one of the most
powerful tools in my 40 years of consulting experience.

From Burry Foss
He was also a founding partner of GHP.  In 1980 he opened the first GHP office outside of Toronto in Calgary, and later opened the Edmonton and Stamford offices.

    Burry, thank you for sharing this with us. A great metafore for working slowly towards the end goal. I also always liked the one Jim would tell about pushing on a rope.
