Welcome back to the Lucrative Leadership Conversations podcast! Over the past two episodes, we have discussed how leaders can master change by leveraging their conversations to impact others within the organization. My co-host, Gene Morton, has developed the Leaders First Process, which includes “6 Bold Steps” leaders can take to sustain performance and create a collaborative structure that aligns with your vision. In episode 4, we introduced the 6 Bold Steps with Step #1: Leaders agree to commit to personal responsibility. Today, we introduce and unpack Step #2: Defining critical outcomes. Gene and I discuss what these critical outcomes are, what they are not, and how they act like a compass pointing toward profitability. Developing critical outcomes will allow leaders to greatly improve Clarity and Focus within their organization. Developing clear, precise outcomes within your leadership team and organization is a critical step in building and maintaining company growth and prosperity. According to Gene, it is the foundation that a leadership team needs in order to begin the strategic planning process that will lead to the implementation and deliverance of the outcomes to a company’s customers. Today, Gene shares with us how developing clear outcome statements differ from other types of statements often used within a company’s industry, such as ethical statements. He defines exactly what an outcome statement is as well as how defining and clarifying a company’s outcome will lead to business growth and development. Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Episode: How does the leadership structure and process compare to strategic planning? What is leadership structure and why is it important? How Gene learned that leadership structure is often missing from strategic planning within organizations. How outcomes differ from a company’s goals and visions.
