Fact. Google “Organizational Stupidity” and you will find hundreds and thousands of articles on this topic.
As a determined, hard-working CEO you may disagree.
“My executives are smart”
“We know our industry”
“We pay attention and work hard.”
Consider these questions:
Is your company currently getting the profit that duplicates what your vision and goals for your business are at this exact point?
Is your organization locked in a low growth pattern and you don’t know why?
Why are you making decisions and strategies which keep you stuck, expecting new results from old practices?
Not to worry. As I explain in this video, you are not alone. For the last 20 years, US firms have been slowly destroying wealth, rather than creating it. One of the main causes - Organizational Stupidity - is still a major threat to businesses worldwide.
Organizational stupidity might absolutely cloud your judgments and strategy, creating mistakes from which you cannot recover.
In this video, I explain what you, as the leader of your company, can do to avoid the irreparable failure caused by Organizational Stupidity.
I will show you what each of these issues looks like and present practical solutions you can use to move faster and with greater certainty, make better strategic decisions, build asset wealth and use that wealth to create sustainable profitable growth.
I will share the five major ways Organizational Stupidity shows itself in your business:
1. Functional Stupidity
Have you ever grasped the feeling your employees might be accepting everything you say?
Learn what Functional stupidity looks like in action, and why it is absolutely necessary your executives would question your assumptions and make critical decisions on a daily basis.
2. Scaled Incompetence
Have you ever happened to notice that your executives are too focused on getting along than actually getting the job done? The bad news is, it creates a habit and the legacy of scaled incompetence, which can eventually collapse your business.
3. Overcomplexity Learn to immediately spot overcomplexity in your business, how to prevent it.
4. Executive Dysfunction Syndrome Do you suffer from EDS? EDS stands for learned models, assumptions and patterns that limit executives from seeing their business environment clearly.
5. Cognitive Bias Are you certain you make decisions based on facts, without cognitive bias?
To avoid Organization Stupidity, you and your company’s leaders must avoid basing your decision on the three main biases:
● Anchoring Bias (the first thing you hear),
● Recency bias (depending on the last thing you hear),
● Availability bias (relying on information because it is easily available).
Time to Transform
There is nothing more business-destructive than basing your decisions on out-dated and obsolete principles in the fast-moving and turbulent times we live in.
This video will give you specific and clear insight into the flaws of your system management and pointing out where you may be practicing organizational stupidity in your business.
Of course, I also want to help you to transform your business beyond recognition, to provide you with the sustainable wealth, growth, and profit you have always been aiming for.
To do so, I will invite you to look closer at the processes and the ecosystem of your company to spot the errors, giving you a step-by-step process to identify what you might be missing and change your business forever.
To highlight the phrase found in the book I co-wrote with Jay Abraham, The CEO Who Sees Around The Corners:
“We all know how complacency sets in. We reach a certain level in our careers and begin to believe that we know everything we need to know.”
This is the epitome of Organizational Stupidity. You can’t keep growing if you don’t continuously expand your knowledge.
Now, think about it.
If your enterprise is not growing... If you are somewhat stuck on any level of your life, you are stuck because there is A FLAW in your strategic management system.
