 * Do you….

    • Routinely and face-to-face speak with employees, customers, suppliers to understand their points of view and share your expectations with them?

    • Identify distributed leaders throughout the organization and enable them with coaching and authority to make the daily adjustments that ensure organization success?

    • Engage a third party to survey customer satisfaction … especially ex-customers?

    • Communicate a clear vision so everyone knows where you want to be, and when?


 * Have you…

    • Published and lived by a set of values that define how the organization works?
    • Identified the passionate, innovative people (the keepers), challenged them with stretch assignments, and recognized and rewarded their successes?

    • Published meaningful measures and metrics to plot performance against goals?

    • Coached poor performers to improve and separated with dignity those who do not?


 * Are you…

    • Living the characteristic you seek in subordinates including energy, innovation, accessibility, optimism, clear thinking, and perseverance?

    • Building-in continuity at critical positions by mentoring succession candidates?

    • Recruiting and nurturing the best people to constantly raise the performance bar?


What We’ve Found: Companies that consistently out-perform their peers engage the energies of their people, query and listen to their customers and suppliers, and continuously raise the bar of performance expectations.
