The theory and research abounds about why Organisations fail to get to where they want to go. Yet not much has really changed about how business leaders can get their people and Companies to thrive. Much of this is the same. Yet many still don’t get it.
We work on 3 different Continents, advising leaders and business owners about how to help their people thrive and transform their Organisations. Yet irrespective of where we are, the same five issues remain the same. So if you are in the driving seat, take these seriously. And it doesn’t matter which level of leadership you sit.
- The Leaders’ lack of Vision
- Unclear Job Roles – who does what?
- Unclear goals and strategies to help achieve the Organisational Vision
- Inconsistent communication or communication break-down – silos, ongoing conflict, Ego’s, turf wars, bad attitudes, unresolved issues that lead into employee disengagement and looking for better horizons elsewhere
Not keeping up with changes – in legislation, buying trends and technology, for example
If you want to lead, you have to look at the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. It’s not for the faint hearted or for missing any of these 5 steps.
