    “What are you hearing?”
  • 11. “why is ‘change’ failing?”
    “do you know about all your projects/programmes?”
    “do you have the right people in the right jobs?”
    “what benefits are we actually realising?”
    “are you willing to change the way you do things?”
  • 12. “Have you asked your people,
    - one on one?
    - for their views and ideas?”
    “Have you created an environment that promotes a comprehensive focus on achieving strategic objectives and top performance?”
  • 13. The Leaders listened to THE VOICE
    And something magical happened
  • 14. They tackled the hard issues……
    Starting with their own team of leaders…… senior managers
    They matched strengths to work
    Opened their minds, got them to accept accountability

    asked questions
    …….and made the first step

    And resurrected
