Barriers to High Performance

Unfortunately, many leaders who are “conflict avoiders” at their core have perpetuated the rather popular organizational myth of the benefits of compromise and consensus. They are the kind of leaders who would rather live with the day-to-day pain of misalignment than do the hard work necessary to help their organizations address the chronic problems that led to the pain in the first place. Gaps and misalignments, and the subconscious pain that comes from them, are the enemy of a high-performance organization and leadership team.
