LEADERS: What Keeps You Up At Night?

If you worry about your organization’s lack of vision, communication, accountability, and execution, then you are not alone. John Spence, author of Awesomely Simple: Essential Business Strategies for Turning Ideas into Action, discovered a “diverse sample of businesses from every imaginable industry” are worried about their organization’s lack of vision, communication, accountability, and execution.

He spoke with over 1,200 business leaders and shares the common answers to the question, “what are the four most important things you need to focus on right now to fix your business?

The answers are:

Relentlessly over-communicate a clear, compelling and focused vision for the future of the organization to all stakeholders.

Foster an environment that demands honest, transparent and courageous communication in order to develop high levels of trust and respect.

Be clear about establishing specific and quantifiable standards of performance and then be rigorous, but never ruthless in absolutely holding every single employee 100% accountable to meeting or exceeding the agreed upon standards.

Develop a culture of disciplined execution by establishing the systems, processes and checkpoints to ensure consistent flawless execution of all critical initiatives.
