Many businesses are run by well-intentioned leadership teams who have a good understanding of the details of their business.
But they don’t spend a lot of time thinking or talking about why their organisation exists or what values should drive their behaviours.
And though they talk about being strategic, they can’t articulate a clear simple strategy, and they don’t have a consistent method for evaluating their decisions.
The leadership team is constantly managing against a long list of broad-ranging goals, some of which may not be compatible and most of which relate to only a few members of the team.
In a cohesive leadership team the members share a common passion for what they are committed to abiding by the same set of values.
