Every company needs direction. That is why CEOs and business leaders are so important in guiding their companies toward success. Without solid leadership, most companies and organizations would simply fall apart.
Strong and successful companies and organizations have strong and successful leadership. Because February 8th is ÂLeadership Success Day,Â now is a perfect time to examine the leadership within your organization and find ways to improve upon it, and accelerate your growth and profit in the process.
Despite good intentions, business leaders often see their once promising business strategies and initiatives mysteriously grind to a halt amidst a tangled web of persistent organizational problems. In her book, Preventing Strategic GridlockÂ®: Leading Over, Under & Around Organizational Jams to Achieve High Performance Results (Cameo Publications, $19.95, ISBN 0-9715739-4-8), author and business performance expert Pamela S. Harper identifies this phenomenon as Âstrategic gridlock.Â Strategic gridlock happens with enough frequency that CEOs and top executives in virtually every industry pass through the exit door in record numbers every day.
For CEOs and business leaders to remain successful in their organizations, they need to be aware of and avoid the hidden roadblocks that could lead to gridlock. Harper states, ÂBusiness leaders can prevent strategic gridlock when they fully consider all six of the guidelines and principles of organizational reality, which are represented by the acronym U.N.L.O.C.K.Â®Â As Harper explains, ÂBusiness leaders need to Understand the full challenge, Negotiate buy-in of key stakeholders, Locate cultural advancers and blockers, Organize relevant goals, priorities, and action plans, Communicate credibly, and Keep adjusting.Â
Harper advises that ÂUsing the U.N.L.O.C.K.Â® process will help your organization avoid strategic gridlock as well as provide you with a faster and smoother route to transform your business strategies and initiatives into high performance results. Implementing this process will also help put CEOs and business leaders on the track to success.
Pamela S. Harper helps business leaders transform their strategies into high performance results by identifying seven roadblocks that stall success and the keys to unlock them. Founder and President of Business Advancement, Inc., Pam bases her in-depth knowledge of the impact of organizational issues on her twenty years of internal and external consulting to leaders of entrepreneurial, middle market, and Fortune 500 companies.
