Avoid Your Lust For Certainty – Go Get What’s There For The Brave
Your lust for certainty is killing your decision making.
What has happened to us all over the past few months is already having a major economic and social impact on how we see the world of work. What we take out of what we are experiencing, in social as well as economic terms will determine who we are as Australians, what we represent as a country and the kind of future we will create.
This is the start of something amazingly big, these are concerning and exciting times for those prepared to move forward with their eyes wide open to the genuine opportunity yet to come. Like explorers of old.
It’s not a time of change, it’s a time of challenge. ‘Fast Change’ and the rise of knowledge work means it’s time to empower employees to take more initiative and voice their ideas in a time of better-informed customers. As leaders we must all avoid becoming stuck in the wrong gear and at the wrong time. But, the biggest challenge of all will be keeping our organizations young, fresh and current, that’s why we need Robust Leadership in place.
Problem 1. During our recent investigation into performance management, it became obvious that in many organizations the performance and operational processes are often in a bad shape and in need of an overhaul, often inadequate and out-of-line with today’s market demands if the organization is to survive, let alone thrive, in the new economy. In a nutshell they managed the wrong behaviours (metrics) and drive the wrong behaviors we are now asking of our leaders (emerging and existing).
Problem 2. With that in mind. The necessity to increase the value of all employees and executives is now urgent. So, how do we improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the human-side of Organizations needed for the future of business?
So, where has the spirit of leadership gone? Where is the Robust Leadership Australia so urgently needs? We want it, we talk about it, but we are not doing it.
