As a leader, do you put ambitious goals forward and manage to realise them? Studies shows that only 15% of Danish middle line managers do this resulting in many organisations not reaching their full potential. Are you a result hero?
A result hero has to be able to do two things:
- He has to able to set forward ambitious goals both for him/herself and the organisation
- He has to be able to realise them
Often it goes wrong already in the goal setting process. Way too many leaders look at yearly results from the previous years and hope to perform slightly better the coming year. Maybe increase sales by 5% or cut the costs with 10%. That is not what vi call ambitious goals. Therefore, our work often starts with helping organisations set goals that are more ambitious than ever before. This is nearly the most important part.
What goals has your organisation sat for the coming year?
