This month’s message is an excerpt fromGary Harpst’s book, “Six Disciplines® Execution Revolution: Solving the One Business Problem That Makes Solving All Other Problems Easier
“One of the most persistent challenges we face as humans is to narrow the gap between knowing what needs to be done, and actually doing what needs to be done. In fact, as business leaders, we collectively know quite a bit about what needs to be done. We’ve read books, taken seminars, and listened to management gurus. We’ve even earned business degrees in understanding what needs to be done. Yet the challenge to somehow bridge this gap continues.
Any approach that stands a chance of taking organizations to the next level of business excellence – and helping them stay there – must address our human nature and help us overcome our frequent failure to do the things we know we should do.”
” Busness coaching has emerged as an industry that has proven its value. The model of bringing in outside expertise and accountability to organizations and individuals within organizations works. As such, it is one of the core tenents upon which the Execution Revolution will be built.”
