๐Ÿ‘Ž The 3 Greatest Reasons For Underperformance

leadership strategy Aug 03, 2022

Over the years of my coaching and consulting practice, I’ve been confronted with a number of repeating practices in all kinds of organisations that result in performance levels far below their potential. 

In other words: many people, teams, and entire organisations are constantly sabotaging themselves because of their thought patterns, routines, and behaviours, consistently staying below their possible performance levels. 

Here are my top 3 reasons for underperformance. Look at your own team and assess how much better you are. If you’re not, start changing today. 

  1. No clear vision. Yes, I have stated this over and over again. And still, most businesses lack a compelling vision for their future. The results on team motivation are tremendous. How well can you perform when you don’t know in which direction you are heading?
  2. No consistent strategy execution. Most organisations do not have a clear, simple, and transparent strategy execution with milestones, measures of success, and responsibilities. Most even lack a one-page overview of their strategy (something that I always create when working with leadership teams on strategy).
  3. Low standards. Far too many leaders accept too low standards for both themselves and their team members. And most have never even defined the standards they expect each member of the organization to live up to each day. These could be standards for behaviours, for routines, for personal growth, for customer interaction and so on.
