Unstuck yourself and engage others with your interaction and actions. Transform into a positive organization where people and performance thrive.

    Hi Marcella, your blog is excellent! I can relate to a lot of situations you discuss, because my experiences include work on 3 continents, both as executive and management consultant. I think that even the best and most positive intentions and initiatives sometime do not work, because they lack substance. By substance I mean existence of a set of performance criteria for every job of the organization, analytically derived target for every criterion, developed with active participation of people who do the job, as accurate as possible reporting of the current performance, regular discussion of the gap between the target and actual and creation of formal action plans. As a direct participant in such a framework, I can say that it is easier said than done. Sometimes takes years for the framework to take hold, but the result always is an organization with supportive, positive, winning culture and excellent financial results.
