people & culture
Focus on people first, they matter the most. Then, work together on building your own culture where your values, morals and standards are unifying, incorporated and clear to everyone. Having top performers and leaders with integrity, empathy and courage in key roles is of crucial importance for every organization that wants to compete, succeed and stay around for decades to come. Recruit and retain the best people you can who will lead and influence your culture, and the rest will follow.
Community and networks
FIRST: It is essential to focus on understanding organizational purpose, priorities and major objectives. Then, dedicate time, effort and energy to these major areas: leadership, people & culture and innovation. All subsequent decisions should be grounded in the framework of your purpose with sights on your clearly defined north star.
Do you know who you are today? More importantly, do you know who you want to become tomorrow?
