5 signs you have an execution risk in your leadership

Effective execution is essential to reaching your growth goals. Here's a quick checklist you can use to identify and minimise the risks to you, your team and your business.

Louise Brown Coaching - Leadership Execution

Why is execution important?

Maintaining a laser focus for resources, energies and connections can unlock barriers to growth and make the difference between reaching your growth goal and missing it - because a great idea, goal or vision is only as good as its execution.

How do I know if an execution failure is affecting my leadership?

If you're not sure whether you are falling down on your execution, ask yourself if you can see or experience any of the factors below:

  1. Your year-end spends don't match your vision priorities

  2. You often lose too much time discussing or looking at adjacent options

  3. Project scopes frequently change or grow, without delivering an acceptable ROI

  4. Different departments or teams have their own maps on how to deliver on your vision

  5. You seem to come across obstacles to making changes - too late

It is part of the human condition to experience distractions, get tired, or forget what is important. As a leader of humans you are uniquely placed to steadfastly connect your people to the end goal and ensure day-to-day business activities are directed towards what really matters. By constantly connecting the journey to the destination, you can anchor your people around the core activities which will actually bring your vision to life, harnessing valuable energy, preventing the risk of unsuccessful implementation and navigating to your growth goal more quickly.
