Eight challenges leaders will need to address in the coming decade
The pace of change in modern business is dizzying, and leaders who aren’t prepared for the challenges on the horizon may find themselves leading their organisations into the history books.In 1958, the average lifespan of a company listed on the S&P 500 stock exchange in the U.S. was 61 years. Today that lifespan is just 18 years – and falling. At the current rate of attrition, three quarters of companies currently listed on the index will have changed in the next decade. The story’s the same in stock markets around the world.
Building an effective team takes work. A lot of work. It takes teamwork. It also takes time and persistence. Is it really worth it?
Some leaders spend their time on strategy, finance, sales, marketing and operations. Do they really need to build a team to be successful?
“Teamwork is almost always lacking within organisations that fail, and often present within those that succeed” Patrick Lencioni.
Elements of teamwork
Teamwork’s vital elements are creativity, increased learning, insight, strengths sharing, pulling together, building strong relationships and a commitment to working together to succeed.
These are all highly desirable, but difficult to measure. And because they are difficult to measure, they are often not prioritised.
Under pressure, teamwork often happens organically. A team pulls together, often working long hours, to achieve a specific goal. But this approach is unsustainable and exhausting.
We can work with you to create the sense of purpose, desire and momentum that you have when highly pressured, on every ordinary working day.
