Old Systems are Costing Billions! A study by the Center for Conflict Resolution International shows that U.S. companies spend more than 2.8 hours per employee per week dealing with conflict (that’s approximately $359 billion in paid hours!). When workplace conflict goes unresolved, team members are likely to leave the company or use valuable time or resources to search for alternatives. Leaders often spend up to 70% of their time dealing with conflict.</p>
<p>Corporations become traps for over-functioning leaders at every level, and under-functioning teams, which increases the cost of doing business and negatively impacts the net profits, diluting cash needed for systems improvement and marketing, as well as many other items that affect the health of the organization. Unaware leaders continue on the track to failure.<br />
Fundamentally, companies function at a marginal level because leaders and teams are not as competent as they need to be, and are unable or unwilling to address issues and dysfunctional systems and therefore, remain bound to low performance standards.
Entrepreneurs fail at an alarming rate, when they should succeed. The struggling economy is used as an excuse for business leaders for under-performing businesses. Successful leaders look for the opportunities and take responsibility for themselves, by building human systems and high performance teams. The best opportunities and plans can fail without the human systems and skills for implementation. Up to 90% of organizations fail because of the lack of the skill of the leader. No organization can go any further than the leaders ability to lead. Existing cultures harbor poor practices and set leaders and teams up for failure. Entrepreneurs starting a business have content expertise, but lack sufficient business expertise
The work of charities is more important than ever and leadership is essential for success. Over 30,000 nonprofits are started each year and half of that number close each year. Rarely is failure about lack of funding. Mostly, failure occurs because leaders and boards don’t know how to develop and successfully implement the capacity upgrades needed for success. In today’s world, churches and nonprofit organizations have more important work to do than ever before. Yet, most are trying to do this with fewer resources than ever. Boards are less effective. Executive directors are overworked and burned out. Volunteers are not fully engaged. The culture is stuck implementing ideas from the past that are no longer effective. And the leadership is not sufficiently skilled at attracting the resources needed for long-term sustainability.
