ME first – TEAM second – VISION last

Correct me if I am wrong but in order to be a successful organization…….., shouldn’t this be the other way around?

In our work we focus on employee engagement and motivation and it is devastating for me to see that morale in most companies is at an all-time low at the moment. Why?

In my opinion we are faced more with a leadership crisis than with an economic crisis.

Due to the lack of leadership and the lack of communication nobody knows what the future will hold. How can we be productive and go the extra mile if we are paralyzed by fear and worry?

Everybody needs to see the brightness of the future and row in the same direction. Instead, companies are in fire fighting mode and the focus is on problems instead of solutions.

Many people are in it for themselves and for the money. It almost seems to me there is no more loyalty. There are too many fact driven managers and not enough visionary leaders.

It is never one person only who makes a company a success. However, if this leader has emotional intelligence and works with and for the people, miracles can and will happen.

Let’s talk to people, get to know the issues, ask questions, try to learn as much as we can from the people and try to involve them to create effective solutions. In order to be respected leaders we have to earn the respect of the people first.

How many of us are really doing that?

VISION first – TEAM second – ME last………. That’s the route we have to choose!

  1. It depends, perhaps that vision statement was written by a financial trader…pretty much the way they operate.
