Join Todd Dewett for an in-depth discussion in this video Course correcting, part of Managing for Results.
- You don't achieve strong team performance…without making a few mistakes along the way,…that's normal.…No team and no plan are ever perfect.…The thing that often separates the good teams…from the great is how fast they fix things…when something goes wrong, to course correct.…That simply means you recognize that…the current configuration of people, resources,…and tasks is not working as you planned…so something has to change.…What's interesting is that sometimes in the face…of data suggesting we need a change,…managers hesitate instead of diving in…to address the situation.…
Sometimes that's explained by low standards.…Other times it's an irrational belief that…things always seem to iron themselves out…or maybe it's a simple fear of causing friction…by discussing a performance issue.…Here's the problem: If you wait too long,…performance can slip even more.…You're wasting time that could be spent…fixing the problem and you're signalling to others…that you're unaware of the issue…or worse yet, you're not willing…to step up and deal with it.…
