Growth Requires Change.
All organization’s today find themselves faced with an ever changing business environment.
What is becoming clear is the environment can turn from friendly to hostile in a moment. What was once stable and predictable can change to chaos seemingly overnight.
What was once a relevant model and profitable organization can quickly find itself becoming irrelevant. Becoming irrelevant is the last, and fatal step, in organizational decline and death.
The ability of the leader to navigate changes in the environment is the prime imperative to sustaining relevance. No matter how successful and confident the leader—no one is immune to the challenges of remaining relevant.
What you did at the start of your organization is no guaranteed as you approach the next level—in fact this thinking is harming your organization.
Evolution informs us that only the species who can learn and change--survive and thrive.
There many leadership questions that must be answered for the leader of a growth organization:
How does my own thinking impact my ability to lead?
How do I influence the thinking of my team?
Is there a better more effective way to lead?
Does my team "think" strategically or are we doing only tactical "fire-fighting"?
What hidden forces are working against my firm's growth plans?
Can I reverse the degrading trend of disengagement within the team?
Does my team tell me what I need to hear or what they think I want to hear?
Am I spending a bulk of my time managing individuals or leading groups?
Do I have the right people in the right seats?
How do I build a leadership pipeline within my company?
Your leadership skill, and the skills of your executive team, will be the determining factor of your business or organization's growth and survival.
