- Leaders of high-performance organizations speak of results and culture in the same breath. Their decisions, communications and actions reflect solid business strategies and organization core values.
- The best leaders integrate traditional business competence and core leadership values with the ability to inspire. Competence may generate promotions, but the higher your leaders go, the more they need to connect personally with employees to succeed.
- Relationships and dialogue, not strategies and systems, drive your business.
- Performance can’t be managed or mandated; your leaders need to focus employees and then help unleash their potential.
- Employee satisfaction isn’t enough. Engagement is required to impact the bottom line. Your workforce needs to be talented, aligned, prepared and committed.
- Individuals are responsible for their job satisfaction and success.
Clarity and the right support can help them become – and stay – engaged.
- Building on strengths provides the fastest route to success.
- Success for your people, and your organization’s core values, requires action. Action demands core leadership values, a plan, and the courage to carry it out.
