Courageous Conversation Write up

Under construction

Execution: Execution is the engine that keeps the cycle going. As dominant culture creates the mind-set within which staff behave, without execution all the engagement will gradually fade into insignificance. To purposefully execute the vision of eliminating reliance on force, encouraging and engaging staff to come up with ideas has to be followed up by the leadership removing barriers to implementation. This might involve cutting through red tape or creatively resourcing requirements or escalating it up to the next level while continuously feeding back to frontline staff what is happening. If we still do not get results a courageous conversation is called for, someone asking why or why not?  An organization which can create a culture that embraces dialogue that fluently flows irrespective of hierarchy will find that they have gained a key enabler for execution and emergence from situations where the change engine had got stuck.
