One thing I've been surprised to learn from working with the world's most successful companies: They don't have any "secret" pixie dust that magically helps them achieve consistent success. In fact, they have the same resources any other organization has in their industry.
So what sets them apart from the rest of the pack? Strategic execution.
World-class organizations simply focus their significant efforts in a disciplined way that naturally get superior results.
Of course, simple isn't usually easy. But it IS do-able.
Here's the basic roadmap:
- Identify and institute the non-negotiables that make you different and better than anyone else in your industry.
- Develop your leaders and hold them accountable for being consistent role models - in every way.
- Develop and engage employees so they can effectively work together as a team on the right things.
- Understand, engage, and WOW your customers with attention to the details they care most about.
- Be better today than you were yesterday.
Of course, the "pixie dust" includes a lot of hard work. More than the competition is willing to do.
The good news? After you gain momentum, it gets easier. A LOT easier.
Think about it. But more importantly, do something about it...today!
