How do you get business growth in today’s turbulent times? Is the business world capable of managing the tide of social change that is beginning to take hold of the global agenda?
Many governments are losing control and several countries in Europe and the Middle East are in turmoil as they struggle to meet the demands of a more engaged population that are not accepting the status quo or reluctant to make the necessary changes required to offset the collapse of their respective economies.
Even within North America “Occupy Wall Street” is starting to show the large distrust that exists between the vocal representatives of the 99% and big corporations. Given this growing unrest what should business, organizations and yes even governments do to make sure they survive and change to deal with the social and vocal upheaval that is taking place throughout the world.
I firmly believe that for any organization to succeed it boils down to three fundamental areas of focus that leaders must ensure are embedded in their organizational culture. Cash flow management, employee engagement and client/customer satisfaction. West Jet gets it -- Air Canada doesn’t. Apple gets it -- RIM doesn’t. Where would you start within your organization?
