Falling Asleep on the Job

Achieving
organizational behavioral change must occur first with leaders. Employees
are very good at picking-up signals from management. They observe much more
closely how leaders ACT versus what they SAY. When there is conflict between
these two behaviors, team members are hesitant to change their own behaviors.
But when there is alignment, leaders are credible and win followers. This
behavior is less inborn than learned. When effectively leveraged it produces
engagement, accountability and a passion among team members. In short it changes
behaviors.  Winning
accountable behavior requires authentic role modeling. This means leaders must
learn how to embrace change. When they do the magic begins to happen!
