Having “good” results might be enough for some leaders, however, “good” might be the “mediocre trap”. In such a constantly and upwardly changing world, “what got you here won’t get your there”. There has always been in the heart and mind of every great leader an aspiration to achieve results that are far better than “good”, urging them to seek new ideology, methodologies and strategies for reaching new highs.
As a world-leading organization specializing in leadership development, FranklinCovey has been working with thousands of leading organizations aiming to reach greatness. We have deeply analyzed operations of more than 500 corporations, 225,000 survey respondents, 2,000 project teams to understand building blocks of greatness, hindrances that pulling corporates behind, conditions to achieve greatness and roles of the leader in meeting such an objective.
Great organizations are not only aiming at numbers, but also at the four core imperatives:
(1) A great effectiveness that balances finance and non-finance factors, and long-term and short-term elements;
(2) Loyal and engaged customers;
(3) Engaged and dedicated employees;
(4) A distinctive contribution of an organization that aims to make a difference through its mission and uniqueness in creating values.
A leader’s job is to make heroes, not be one. A great leader is the one who can bring the whole team to greatness, and together, they bring the entire organization to greatness level.
In this particular knowledge working age, the greatest asset that one enterprise ever possesses is the potential and power of its human capital. Therefore, the “leveraging” role of a great leader has become more critical than ever before. To achieve and create such greatness, leaders must be equipped with a new mindset, skillset and toolset to lead their organizations for sustainable growth in this new era.
