SHIFT CULTURE TO BE CONGRUENT WITH YOUR ORGANIZATION’S VALUES
Does Your Business Struggle Because Staff Isn’t Motivated and Working Together?
Sales, customer service, production, and office management all seem to be on the fast track to mediocrity. You would give your left arm to motivate everyone and get them excited about their jobs, but nothing you do seems to work.
You send out a memo that nobody reads. You throw a pizza party that lays waste to hundreds of dollars in pizza. You give gift certificates at Christmas. And announce a new bonus program that can increase everyone’s income.
Yet all those things create nothing more than a yawn. People drag through their tasks, the same mistakes happen over and over, and no matter how much you wish it weren’t, your business does not yet have the inspired teams who believe in your vision and are giving 110% effort to make your goals a reality.
Until you get that, your business will struggle while you work too hard for far less reward.

There is power in everyone on the team pulling in the same direction
(against the competition) that accelerates momentum.

Often, leaders struggle to deliver on key initiatives/results because their cultures lack accountability and adherence to values. Culture shifting requires clarity on the direction of the organization.
Three Questions To Ask Yourself
1. What is currently not working?
2. What changes are necessary to move towards the goal?
3. What key initiatives/results are critical to the organization’s success in the next 12 months?
Gaps exist in every organization. They are costly as they suck the energy and momentum out of the workplace. Leaders get hired to close gaps and deliver on key initiatives/results, but they often fail to lead the whole organization in achieving desired outcomes.
LEAD Diligently understands the frustration and confusion leaders face in this challenging work environment. This situation and resultant leadership behavior create silos of heroes and villains, all working in the same company and supposedly on the same team.

Accountability: The Low-Hanging Fruit for Optimizing Individual and Organizational Performance
Any leadership development training, business improvement process, or organizational intervention needs to begin with a clear focus on the business results you want to achieve. Ensuring those efforts are permeated with accountability will accelerate results and help guarantee your success.
LEAD Diligently defines Accountability as “A personal choice to rise above one’s circumstances and demonstrate ownership to do the right thing. It requires courage, transparency, and alignment.”
Leadership Accountability starts itself with aligning the teams’ behaviors with the organization’s values and mission.
At LEAD Diligently, we introduce a positive and principled view of accountability. Accountability for results becomes something everyone embraces as a helpful step in moving the organization forward.
Leadership accountability is not about finger-pointing, participating in the blame game, or covering your tail-type behaviors that many leaders are guilty of tolerating among their teams.
Leaders Are To Lead By Example
Greater accountability among your leadership team will eliminate time and energy wasted on unproductive behavior that results in confusion and distraction. In a complex and challenging business environment, no organization can afford to pay the price for lack of accountability and leader development necessary to achieve key initiatives/results.
