Do you breed complacency?

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

Bill Gates said, “Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” It’s true, says leadership guru John Kotter: High achievers tend to feel content with the status quo.

Questions to determine whether complacency has set in:

  • Are team conversations inwardly focused, and not about new markets?
  • Are past failures discussed only to stall new initiatives?
  • Do important meetings end with no decisions about action?
  • Do workers regularly blame others?

If you answered mostly “yes,” it’s time to instill a sense of urgency.
