If you are the BOSS then pay attention. Generally speaking, most bosses I meet want to succeed and they want their businesses to grow. This seems very reasonable, given the alternatives; no growth, little success or complete decline.
Yet many businesses do suffer decline or no growth. When I get a call it usually starts with “we need more leadership…..” and this logic again sounds reasonable, “ If we had more managers who could step-up we would have more strategically important problems solved.”
There is nothing wrong with this assertion. General idea: If we give managers new skills, feedback and develop their self of awareness success will follow. WRONG!
If we do these things and then give them a new management environment to work in, success would have a real chance.
So what is wrong the management environment? The BOSS.
