I will discuss why too many organizations fail to execute their strategy and why they tend to develop a sustainable high commitment, high-performance organization. I will show that failures are due to organizational silence, the difficulty of people to speak truth to power about barriers to organizational effectiveness and the failures of CEOs to learn from lower levels the truth about why their system of organizing, managing and leading. I will discuss six silent killers (barriers that block organizational effectiveness and why and how honest, collective and public conversations about the organizational system through a method called the Strategic Fitness Process and its underlying principles simultaneously improves 1) effectiveness and performance, trust and commitment and 3) agility.
After this session, you will walk away with learnings on:
Why the system of organizing, managing and leading is so difficult to realign with strategy
* Why organizational change and transformation fails
* How six silent killers – barriers found in all organizations - undermine an organization’s effectiveness and agility
* Why honest, collective and public conversations powerfully help companies succeed
* How to leaders can and conduct an honest conversation and role of HR in helping them, and why this really does make them strategic partners.
