In this monthly 'Do's and Don'ts' blog, we share best practices for you to start using as of today. Good luck and let us know how it turns out in your company !
A question we address at every management dialogue we host is the WHY.
You will be surprised to see strong advocates, a large quiet middle and strong opponents. Explaining the WHY repeatedly across your organization is a critical succes factor.
~ Some do it for the #businesscase and think about the 21 % better financial results it generates
~ Some do it because of their personal values
~ Some think a team should reflect the diversity of its #customers
But the strongest driver for real change might be the #warfortalent and the search for #purpose. Top talents are looking for companies that have a social purpose. That actively work on creating not only stakeholder but also shareholder value. That have an active journey towards more #diversity in leadership. Because it's the new normal. Because it's 2019. If you want to attract them, you better get your act together and start doing something now.
