Are You Ready to Make the Commitment and Do What it Takes to Transform Your Company Into a High Performance Organization (HPO)?

Having acquired knowledge is far less important to a leader’s success than your ability to learn. Learning is the key to growth. And growth is essential to life.

Most people, even those who may consider themselves to be life-long learners – have shut down their capacity to learn. More often we seek to validate what we already know. Or we expand upon what we are comfortable knowing. We focus more on what we are experts on and little on anything else we might need to know and don’t. Real learning is based on understanding what it is that you need to know that is required for the things you must accomplish. The essence in true leadership is learning. And the essence of learning is remaining open and curious – and understanding that questions are not just the genesis of learning – they are the result and great questions are the proof.

“A high performance organization is one that does everything it does better than anyone else —- and improves upon that every day — giving that organization a sustainable competitive advantage.” – Dr. Lee Thayer

What Kind of Leader are You?

More importantly, what kind of leader do you want and need to be?

Peter Drucker once quipped that the only requirement of being a leader – is having at least one willing follower. Being a leader does not prove – or accomplish anything. Most often it is a designation suggesting a level of power and authority – but without any consideration to the skills, competencies or qualities required of demonstrating leadership.

Leadership is more than static qualities or personal traits. Leadership is about efficacy. It ties together purpose and the actions necessary to accomplish the things required of consequential objectives. Leadership is about directing performance – of people as individuals and of the organization to which they belong.

The Navy Seals describe it this way :

 

Leadership is the ability to crate an environment that influences and directs the choices of others.

What kind of environment have you created? What level of influence to you have on the people you lead? And how do their choices reflect the needs, purpose and aspirations of the organization?

The Only Measure of Performance is… Performance!

Performance is the action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, operation or function seen in terms of how successfully it was performed on the basis of what was accomplished. Most organizations measure performance by looking at the results – rather than the functions. Overlooking cause and measuring effect is a rudderless journey. Luck is confused for competency and success is more-or-less accidental. Achieving high performance requires deliberate leadership and understanding what it takes to balance the need for good luck (or consequences of bad luck) with the ability to create a compelling future. High Performance Organizations (HPOs) are what change the world, save lives and create a sustainable society.
