Business forced into silos must give way to open and agile systems that better suit today’s needs. The costs of command and control leadership are getting higher. When a company starts making mistakes, tries to force its agenda on others or is in conflict with its stakeholders, the consequences are significant. People revolt and profit margins destroyed; projects get delayed in regulatory and community review for extended lengths of time; employees simply don’t give their best because they do not trust the systems they work in, especially when they have little influence in the processes or programs in which they are involved. The costs to organizations can be both internal and external disengagement, rejection by regulatory bodies and governments, impacted communities, and even damage to the environment. Add to that a wide range of human costs including everything from depression, conflict, suicide, marital breakdown and career paralysis to the loss of the intelligence and vision of the brightest people in your business simply because they mentally check out when they come to work. All this means lost productivity, lost opportunities to grow and prosper, and distracted leaders and workers who no longer feel able to do good work.
Leaders and organizations, however, can gain a key strategic advantage by avoiding all of this energy and revenue-sapping negativity by working together to build a culture of collaboration.
Simply put, you chose to commit to be part of the profound evolution of how leaders develop their teams, network,s and strategic advantages.
