During my time as a Fortune 500 CFO and as a business advisor, I noticed that successful organizations have a culture that attracts high performing employees. Their culture matches their business goals and the business seems to grow effortlessly. These companies have a culture built around highly ethical behaviors and most list their values in the strategic mission.

In a world where someone can walk into a restaurant, shopping mall, or school and open fire on hundreds of innocent people, where jobs disappear overnight, where cancer appears suddenly on a scan, people grasp for order, stability, and control.

They demand the same from communication coming to them––the email, instruction, or announcement should make sense for them personally. Generic messages about change get ignored.

Organizations and executives crave predictability and consistency. Bearing the burden of accountability to stockholders and stakeholders, CEOs seek complete visibility to their companies’ operation, performance, and results. This obsession with consistency and predictability is what often keeps organizations from adapting more quickly to the changing environments in the market and to evolving customers’ tastes. In search of the perfect, well-planned strategy, CEOs delay execution and arrive at the finish line (if there ever is one) with a less than relevant performance at best.
