“Many leadership, corporate culture and training and development programs produce only short-term gains that fade away as teams go back to their old habits.”
This means that the main challenge for any leadership team is to build a lasting culture of excellence throughout the entire organisation.
The key to moving your organization from the status quo to an expectation of excellence is your corporate culture. When you build a culture of excellence, you create organizational capacity and a structure that empowers, focuses and engages employees.
A key ingredient to transforming your business from the status quo to a sustainable, high performance organization, therefore, is your corporate culture.
When you build a corporate culture of excellence, you create organizational capacity and a structure that empowers, focuses and engages employees. You stop nurturing an outmoded culture focused on problem-solving.
Instead, you expend your energy and resources to equip your teams with the right mindset and skills necessary to focus on creating the desired results.
A dysfunctional culture can drive your best talent away; an exciting, supportive, and empowering one can attract and retain them.
As an organization, you also need to help employees develop the flexibility and resilience to deal with change, challenge and uncertainty that may arise along the way. This will ensure that they are ready to learn, absorb and retain new skills and stay focused on their goals.
Finally, your leaders need to embrace practical coaching for excellence skills to sustain your momentum over the long term.
Without this internal leadership and coaching capacity in place you will resort to the old pattern of finding short term solutions that fall by the wayside as employees slip back to their old habits.
