Leaders need to visibly walk the talk, and show they are serious about customer satisfaction.
By focusing on productivity rather than wages, leaders can improve their visibility of the business, and deliver results that really matter.
Executive leadership is often portrayed as high pressure. Boards justify spectacular executive packages by citing the uncertainty of the top job, and the notion that people who actively seek leadership positions need to be given an enormous incentive to create shareholder value. The reality is often rather different.
It is worth considering how every KPI you measure maps into your top level goals, and who precisely will be held accountable. If there is no real accountability, then you are probably wasting your time.
