Organizations are complex and at the same time are simple. Principals, Values and the Culture are all important. However, what has more impact than any other? The health and cohesion of the senior team! When senior team members understand this and make this their #1 priority, the entire organization has the potential to grow and become healthy as well.
Many senior team members have functional responsibilities and often identify those functions as their #1 priority. They are often misguided and mistaken in this priority. Their allegiance to their core team – the senior team, must be their primary allegiance. If not, dysfunction occurs and the organization suffers.
