Best Practice Leadership

Today's unique competitive environment forces organizations to deconstruct and analyze every aspect of their business in search of value. Unfortunately, slash and burn tactics in one part of the business often create unforeseen internal consequences elsewhere. The challenge for exceptional leadership teams is to create and maintain balanced focus across the organization...managing the enterprise as a whole, and not in pieces.

 The Four Integrated Objectives of Best Practice Leadership: 1) Engaged Employees, 2) Effective Processes, 3) Customer Experience, 4) Financial Results

While extremely aggressive actions may be necessary in the short term, balanced organizations are careful not to callously disenfranchise employees, destroy the integrity of the product or services being offered, or leave customers to fend for themselves in "dis"integrated processes.

Best practice leadership means proactively balancing four integrated objectives:

  • Creating and maintaining engaged and inspired employees
  • Building effective and efficient processes
  • Designing customer experiences that delight and entangle
  • Deliver the financial results for the short- and long-term that the organization wants

The fourth, financial results the organization wants, is an outcome of the first three. The challenge for leadership is to balance these four pillars of success.
