Creating a Culture of Decentralized Leadership
Most organizations find it difficult to do what they regard as important; they are good at planning but struggle to put these plans into action. This is not a new problem; this is a widespread & enduring problem for most organizations.
Learning how to close this gap is the purpose of this breakout. It’s not about creating more detailed plans, rather its about creating “clarity & alignment”.
This is accomplished by creating a culture where top leadership focuses on “what to achieve & why” and grants autonomy so front line executors can focus on “what to do & how”.
Top 3 Takeaways:
- You can’t create perfect plans so don’t even try; You must formulate your strategy as an “intent” instead of a “plan”.
- Leaders need to aggressively focus on getting the message out; Pass the message to others by focusing on what to achieve and “why”.
- Decentralized decision making is imperative; it promotes flexibility, adaptability, and a break from mediocrity.
