Three Steps to Navigate the Barriers to Your Success


1. Listen to your employees

“I want to work for a company whose leaders care about me as a human being. I want opportunities to grow professionally, and to be part of something bigger than myself.”   --Katie M., age 28, software engineer

Sound familiar? Maybe not familiar enough. According to research at Gallup, 87% of employees are not engaged at work. That's a lot of missed opportunity, because Gallup's research also indicates that companies with highly engaged workforces outperform their peers by 147% in earnings per share.

Unfortunately, too often the friction created by today's marketplace mindset is a barrier to unlocking the potential for performance. You can start by listening to how your employees see themselves in the world today. 

2. Watch out for "high alert" transition points

Executing bold moves is a business imperative to break through the dissonance created by today's workplace mindset, especially at critical junctures in an enterprise's lifecycle:

  • Rapid growth
  • Exit strategy pressures

  • Leadership transition

  • Talent realignment

  • Market disruption

  • Community engagement demands
