Growth accelerates when an organization begins to focus. That requires a shared definition of success and agreement on the key priorities for growth.
Many leaders assume that their colleagues know what the priorities for the business are. They are shocked when they find out that the list of priorities for their teams is long, confusing and sometimes contradictory.
