Today’s workplaces are full of people running in different directions. Getting busy with much activity, ending their day with little to show for it all. Lack of focus drains leader-managers’ energy, wastes team resources, and dilutes all efforts to excel and be effective.
Many workplace management activities are often confused for productivity. Someone may appear to be productive when in fact they are just busy with activities, or ‘inputs’. Real effectiveness is defined by results, or outputs.
Accountability is a cornerstone of any successful organization. When ownership is not clear, projects stall. Blame becomes rampant resulting in conflict and a disengaged workforce.
