Welcome to the 3rd video in this series on “Vision to Action: Bridge to Growth.” Now that you understand the model, I’m putting it to work highlighting the 4 main dysfunctions all organizations deal with at some point in their life-cycle. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when” – they’re not deadly unless they persist unchecked – but it’s YOUR JOB, as a leader, to make sure you identify and stay on top of them.
The labels of the primary dysfunctions are listed again here (may not be clear from the video): “sagging, wall, void, silo.” Now it’s up to you to match them up…
First and foremost, Happy New Year! I hope it’s gotten off to a great start. I especially appreciate your faithfulness in coming to Blue Ink and sharing your thoughts. I hope it continues to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for the coming year.
In my previous December-post I made the case for first “looking back” to identify lessons-learned before “looking forward,” and jumping-in to the traditional rhythm of defining resolutions and goals for the new year.
I took it a step further by challenging you to exchange lessons with others to enrich your learning experience even further – thus the kickoff of #2014LLE – the 2014 Lessons Learned Exchange.
The results are in and the response was amazing! I’m impressed by the time many of you took to share very personal reflections and thoughts – thank you! What stood out as a central theme was your focus on relationships – communication, sensitivity, resolving conflict, support, etc. (important!…and likely a subject of a future post).
Here’s a quick summary of the main points via direct quotes from your comments (for the full text see the comment section of the last post): Read More
