Businesses require high human performance and yet it is the thing that is most often missed. Leaders focus on processes, roles, collaboration, and systems, but they forget the human performance side. Every day that key leaders, and their teams, lack the energy, stamina, mental agility, and resilience to execute the business strategy, the business underperforms.
THE CRITICAL teams are the go-to leaders and teams. They are in charge of corporate transformations, launching products, managing crisis, and innovation. Not only do they face the same challenges as the other teams, they have the additional pressures of winning the key battles, leading the toughest charges, and launching the most critical initiatives. Without the right strategies and support, these teams will quickly operate in a survival mode.
Unfortunately, SURVIVAL MODE has some grave consequences on THE CRITICAL teams:
_they can’t fight as hard for the best solutions
_they don’t want to go the extra mile to execute
_they become cynical
_they can be forced to compromise their values (personal and organizational)
_they struggle to be innovative
_they compromise their personal, and their team’s, resilience
_they lose their passion and excitement to fight for the vision
