Most boards don’t feel anything like this photo. Yet if you could get this blue sky approach, what could you achieve, what could you do, where could you take the business. Sometimes all it needs is for someone to remove the mist.
We had a client who actually asked us to put back the mist. Unfortunately once you have seen the issues, you can’t un-see them. Instead we worked diligently with that particular CEO to identify and then make the necessary changes to his business model. Things that were holding the business back and frustrating the people who were driving it forward were removed. This allowed the business to unshackle itself and grow. It wasn’t without pain but it was necessary and beneficial in the long run.
