"Strategy execution is the responsibility that makes or breaks executives."
- Alan Branche and Sam Bodley-Scott
Today I have a singular focus.
Getting to the execution phase of our work requires time, planning, lots of collaborative discussion...
...and doing the work!
My first question today is simple. How do you ensure the executives in your world actually do the work?
Do they talk and talk and talk?
Do they have an endless list of excuses to justify why projects aren't moving forward?
Do you feel like you're doing more of the work than they are?
My second question is more direct. Why are you tolerating this lack of leadership?
How About You
How do you handle the reality of working with leaders who are weak when it comes to executing strategy? It is common, and often requires focused coaching in order for them to improve. What has worked for you?
I'd love to hear from you.
