organizational roadblocks

After wrist surgery this past week, this may qualify as my shortest blog ever...

What is an organizational roadblock? It is anything that keeps the institution from more fully living out its mission and vision. Such items could include:

  • structures

  • budgets

  • silos

  • unaddressed critical issues

  • unaddressed non-critical issues

  • weak personnel policies

  • a focus on managing rather than leading fron those in leadership roles

  • having the wrong people at the table

  • lack of support and encouragement for the organization's best people

This list could go on and on, and will change depending on what is happening in one's life and/or organization at any given moment. The biggest question to ask is this:


and if so, what am I going to do about it starting right now?
