Good to Great
Whether you own a company, manage a team or work in an organisation you probably have a mixture of good, bad and maybe some ugly experiences.
Are you building a great company or team now?
This programme teaches you 7 principles for building greatness in your organisation or team.
By learning and applying the Good to Great principles you will:
- Increase productivity through simplification
- Create a culture where the truth can be told, without blame
- Empower disciplined people to make more effective decisions
- Focus on the right opportunities and reject the wrong ones
- Understand whether technology will help or hinder your organisation
PRINCIPLE 1 LEVEL 5 LEADERSHIP
Leaders who have a combination of drive and humility run great organisations not ego-driven showhorses with all the ideas.
What kind of leader are you? You can learn to become a great leader.
PRINCIPLE 2: FIRST WHO, THEN WHAT
Having the right people on the bus, having the right people in the right seats, then working together to find a route and a destination provides the potential for greatness.
PRINCIPLE 3: CONFRONT THE BRUTAL FACTS
Creating the culture where the truth can be heard, without blame being attached creates the opportunity for people and organisations to grow and develop.
PRINCIPLE 4: THE HEDGEHOG CONCEPT
What do you love doing? What are you really good at? What pays well? Finding a positive answer to all three questions and building your team and organisation around this will help provide a culture of greatness.
PRINCIPLE 5: A CULTURE OF DISCIPLINE
Disciplined people, having disciplined thoughts and then taking disciplined action = potential for greatness.
PRINCIPLE 6: TECHNOLOGY ACCELERATORS
Not all technology will accelerate your team or organisation. Some will drain valuable resource. Others will change rapidly. Investing in the right technology for the right reasons will help accelerate greatness, not create it.
PRINCIPLE 7: THE FLYWHEEL AND THE DOOM LOOP
Most organisations go through the doom loop cycle of success closely followed by failure and the cycle repeats itself over and over again. Good to great organisations don’t follow this pattern. There is no one big moment. They keep pushing the flywheel then eventually it takes off.
