Typically when we are speaking about the Execution Gap we are talking about the gap between your vision or goals and the actual results you or your organization are producing.
While that gap is often worth closing because it represents a significant upside, both financially as well as qualitatively, it is not easy to close. The reason is that the Outer Execution Gap is really just a reflection of a hidden Leadership Gap.
Results = Potential – Leadership Gap
Enlightened leaders begin to understand that in order to effectively close their execution gaps, they must close their hidden leadership gaps first.
So if you are thinking, ‘I don’t have any hidden gaps,’ you are one of millions of leaders who do not see what’s in their blind-spot. Welcome to the human race.
Most of us believe that the problems are outside of ourselves and that we had little or nothing to do with creating them. The problem with that perspective is that we also don’t see what it would take to overcome or remove those barriers to success and break through.
The good news is: It is not as hard as you may think.
Results of your organization are directly related to the conversations your are having, not having or not having well.
