What is missing that would significantly increase productivity and directly enhance performance? What has been neglected or overlooked?
The answer: Leadership and culture.
The quality and potency of leadership that got you to this level won’t get you much higher. The senior team — not just you — needs to lead. Your senior team needs to be more responsible and accountable, and operate with greater integrity. They need to be far more self-governing and self-managing. That means your leadership must also transform to include more than one leader.
The culture that has been loosely developed does not have the conditions necessary for solid trusting relationships, strong communication, or consistent enforcement of accountabilities. Culture is the king — not a bunch of pawns on the board.
It’s now time for strong leadership development of yourself and the senior staff, in addition to focused cultural development throughout the enterprise.
