Biggest Trap for Senior Managers Impacts around 80% of all Companies

Wednesday 13 May 2015

If there is one thing our experience working with organisations of all types and sizes has taught us, it is this: Senior Managers love results. Especially positive ones. And yet our experience also highlights a glaring Irony - in the absence of positive results, most senior managers would prefer the exact opposite - BAD results. And the reason? Bad results mean 'action' and a challenge to test senior manager brain power in the cut and thrust of running an organisation

This duplicity of thinking is aligned to the fact that most senior managers are comfortable doing things - ANYthing. Just not NO thing.

And that's the trap. Management by crisis is preferred to 'stability & boredom' and in cases of boredom some senior managers have, consciously or otherwise, created the conditions for a crisis to emerge. The trap that separates exceptional managers from the okay ones is their ability to deal with, and not unecessarily interfere with, boredom and times of stability.

Do NO thing! A Trap that is too strong for many senior managers, especially where activity means more than productivity. Expended resources on movement, not progress. Do NO THING - can you handle that?
