Implementers EOS Leadership Organization Team Business

A cohesive and effective leadership team makes decisions for the greater good of the organization. Members of the team are selfless, willing to put their egos and personal agendas aside and ask themselves what is best for their company. Unfortunately, when faced with tough decisions the first inclination is to make decisions based on how the outcome will affect us personally or our department. The winner is often the person who is most persuasive but the loser is the company whose leadership team is constantly infighting to protect its turf.

Ineffective leadership teams lack the right tools to help them create clarity, simplify the decision-making process and provide the context where the best decision – the one for the greater good – can be made.
