Join Mike Figliuolo for an in-depth discussion in this video Trust, part of Executive Decision Making.
- Executive decisions require people…to commit to change.…The more people understand the decision…and how and why it was made,…the more committed they're going to be…to making those difficult changes.…Without that knowledge,…decisions are going to be suspect.…Many people assume the worst about…the motivations behind the decision.…There'll be talk at the water cooler,…people talking about, here's why I think they made the call,…and why that person is going to benefit.…
This is all non-productive conversation,…so you need transparency to build the trust…and reduce the execution risk of the decision being made.…Having shared accountability and shared rewards…goes a long way towards eliminating mistrust…relating to self-interest.…If everyone knows we're all being compensated…for the success of this decision,…and this decision drives…the overall performance of the business,…you've got people aligned,…and you're going to get the committed…to the overall decision being made.…
I know one executive who suffered…with issues of trust.…
Mike helps you find the data and tools to support your decision, make the call, communicate decisions effectively, and lead your organization through the change. He'll also address common problems that arise from these high-profile decisions: cultural differences, quality of information, trust, and accountability, to name a few.
