Napoleon Hill said: “There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.” As we continue our discussions on leadership and its role in building operational effectiveness, Hill’s statement is a reminder that there is a direct correlation between success and clarity of purpose.
As a Leader, this clarity must not only be clearly understood, but also effectively communicated to your Staff. If everyone understands the Company’s purpose and vision, it becomes easier to implement the desired results.
In order to achieve operational effectiveness within any organization, everyone must understand what needs to be accomplished: that clarity of purpose. This is a characteristic of operational effectiveness.
Aldridge Kerr will continue its discussions on building operational effectiveness over the next several blogs and throughout this year’s newsletter topics.
