Making the Shift from Knowing to Doing: 7 bad habits that slow [organizations] down

November 9, 2010

Good article on the Blanchard Leader Chat blog on seven bad habits that impede the performance of an organization.  Well worth a read.

The seven habits are:

1. Mimicking best practices instead of underlying values.

2. Staying conceptual instead of getting practical

3. Planning and deciding instead of doing

4. Punishing failure instead of encouraging initiative.

5. Setting a poor example at the top.

6. Creating a competitive internal environment.

7. Poor measurement and tracking.

They go on to say – develop an attitude of action.  I like that.

Have a great week!
