You Need a Breakthrough Leadership Team
Think of your company as a human body. If the heart is weak and not pumping blood sufficiently, the body falls apart. Extremities go numb. Organs start to shut down. You can put the patient on dialysis to help the kidneys or use physical therapy to strengthen their arms or legs, but if the blood flow from the heart is sluggish or inconsistent, you cant thrive. The best way to get healthy and feel energetic again is to strengthen the heart.
Your leadership team is the heart of your company.
Ive been a business coach and consultant for thirty years and have found that improving leadership teams is the most effective way to bring my clients lasting success.
My core purpose is to help as many people as possible feel fulfilled by their work. I work with leadership teams to create great companies that provide amazing work environments and exciting opportunities for growth. This book provides a framework that will help you develop your own incredible companies and work environments. I wrote this book to not only share my knowledge in helping companies find success, but also to improve the lives of the individuals on leadership teams.
If your leadership team is weakif its members are overwhelmed, for instance, or not skilled enough to bring fresh ideas that keep your company growingthe problems will spread throughout your organization. If the people on your leadership team arent working together, the people beneath them wont work together. If the members of your leadership team dont hold themselves accountable, the people who report to them wont hold themselves accountable. If the leadership team is more concerned about individual goals than they are about the teams goals and the companys overarching goals, then the rest of your company will be similarly fractured, and growth and revenue will stall.
Your leadership team isnt just the heart of your company; its also the soul. A great company with a strong leadership team has a conscience. Its adding value to society. Its solving a problem, addressing a need, or working actively to help its customers do that. Great companies have a sense of purpose that goes beyond profit; they help make the world a better place.
