6 Traps to Guard Against!

Dave Anderson once said,

“The enemy of great is good. The primary reason so few leaders or organisations ever become great is because they get good and they stop. They stop growing, learning, risking and changing. They use their track record or prior successes as evidence that they’ve arrived. Believing their own headlines, the leaders in these successful organizations are ready to write it down, build the manual and document the formula. This mentality shifts their organisation from a growth mindset to a maintenance mindset.”

There are 6 traps to guard against in order to keep moving from good to great:

  1. The trap of stopping to work on yourself
  2. The trap of stopping to think big and take risks
  3. The trap of stopping to lead from the front
  4. The trap of stopping to develop others around you
  5. The trap of stopping to hold your team accountable
  6. The trap of abandoning the basics

Lead the Change!
