In today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world the attributes for sustained business success are numerous. Having the finest product, outstanding customer service, the widest distribution channels and partners, the most efficient and lean business processes, the best talent on hand and paying them handsomely does not assure sustained long term success.
Inevitably something or other always gets in the way. The most well thought strategies rarely progress as intended and the reasons that prevent flawless execution are numerous, unanticipated, often beyond imagination and quite unpredictable.
We are privileged to be working with amazing organisations and leaders around the world for over twenty five years, observing and enabling sustained business success from very close quarters. Time and time again we have seen that success comes to those organisations and leaders who:
a) ensure their employees, associates, workforce are truly engaged and excited to be associated with their business or organisation; in return, these organisations are rewarded with copious amounts of discretionary effort and goodwill.
b) recognise the value of their workforce and realise that its successful leverage is far too important, precious and business critical to be left solely to the HR department. Achieving workforce effectiveness and enabling continued returns from its people investments are at the core of its everyday business and accordingly such organisations assign top priority in its business agenda.
c) embrace change and demonstrate that standing still is an untenable option. These organisations seize every opportunity for innovation, improvement, change and optimisation. They have painstakingly fostered organisational cultures to encourage employees to think, innovate, be creative and take accountability.
How successful is your organisation and business? How do you know your workforce is truly engaged and accountable? Are realising the potential of your people investments at the top of your business agenda? How innovative and nimble is your organisation culture? Or perhaps, your organisation and business is one of the enviable few who have undeniably resolved these issues and assured long term success.
