In this blog, Jim Haudan (CEO and Chairman of our Thought Leader partners, Root Learning) outlines 4 steps that will help executive teams elevate “where and how they play the game of their business.”
When I work with senior teams to help them make decisions on the clarity, alignment, and execution for their strategies, I ask, “How much of your time is spent working in – versus on – the business?” Working in the business means playing the game with day-to-day tactical activities. Working on the business includes coaching, anticipating, and making changes to prepare the organization to win in the future.
Without exception, every team says that they spend 75% of their time in the business and just 25% on the business. In this disruptive environment, they can’t succeed unless they reverse this metric.
