SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN THE NEW WORLD OF WORK
There are companies and entrepreneurs (Destructive Competition) at this moment looking to reinvent the way your business is done. How many bookstores were wiped out because of Amazon.com? What happened to Kodak? Blockbuster? Sears? Woolworth’s? Nokia? Rest assured someone somewhere is about to revolutionize your industry.
We are in a brawl with few rules, where the fast, flexible, and agile will eat and spit out the slow, over-thinking, and complacent. Individuals, teams, and organizations that fail to adapt will find themselves vulnerable, uncomfortable, and at the mercy of other people, events, or the competition.
Hundreds of thousands of jobs have been expunged, teams eliminated, and firms driven to extinction due to ERP, SAP, the Internet, or White-Collar Robots (EX: Cash Machines). Blue-collar robots came and triumphed. The new target – White-collar world. Are you, your team, and your company confident that the value you exhibit outweighs these new options?
CULTIVATE YOUR OPTIMAL CULTURE
Your culture is your ‘brand.’ The experiences your culture creates will either reinforce that current ‘brand’ or evoke a new one. You can either lead your culture, or it will lead you. An organization’s (or team’s) culture is either an engine propelling it toward it’s desired results, or an anchor impeding and hindering it’s progress.
Culture, simply put, is the convergence of the way your employees think and act. That culture is producing your organization’s every result. If your future desired results are loftier, more difficult, of just different than those you are achieving today, will your current culture be able to deliver?
Executing any strategy that requires change in human behavior may be the most difficult challenge a leader will ever face. Two out of three crucial strategies fail to produce desired outcomes. How many of your most crucial strategies over the past three years achieved and sustained rousing success? How many slowly suffocated over time?
Deciding upon new strategies and direction is challenging. Getting employees at every level to think, act and behave in a manner that assures the strategy is a success is even more difficult. Applying these principles of flawless execution will enhance your likelihood of success.
