Ice Cream Trucks & Good Strategy

Strategy often stumbles because it’s complicated, confusing and difficult to recognize. If you want a great read about the history of the ice cream truck, check out Michael’s article. It may challenge you to create clear and compelling strategic messages for your business.

Is there a ball hog in your executive team?

If you or any other senior executive, complain that they don’t get the buy-in they expect from their executive team or are concerned that they don’t get constructive push back from their executive colleagues, it could be an opportunity to look at how well “the ball” is being shared in the executive team.

Artificial versus Natural Challenges

When team conversations and discussions become too internally oriented, they are focusing on what I call artificial challenges. Teams that have an outward-bound orientation (customers, new opportunities in the marketplace) focus on natural challenges, outside the business.

S.A.C.R.E.D. Setbacks

A setback is an important sign that we are in a “learning zone”. If you are not experiencing setbacks, chances are you have wrapped yourself up too tightly in the comfort zone. Do not let setbacks keep you down, instead use the S.A.C.R.E.D. frame to help you move through them.

Superficial or Senseful Strategy?

Leadership teams fall short of their strategic ambitions, in many instances, because they settle for strategy authorship, rather than strategic ownership. Just because a leadership team has created strategy (authorship) does not mean they and the organization own it.
