It can be said that every individual and every organization executes and whether it is done well or not so well makes all the difference in terms of the outcome. Everything you do takes execution. It takes execution to create a strategy. It takes execution to implement a strategy. It takes execution to do all the day-to-day activities one does in their organization. Execution includes planning, engaging the organization and implementing. It’s all execution.
But here’s the dilemma. If all we do is execute, then why don’t we really focus on our ability to be good at it? Why doesn’t every single leader have execution as the number one skill to excel in? More importantly, when are we going to discover execution?
Consider what it would be like in your organization if you had a real competency in execution. Not just that you were okay at it, but you were great at it. What would there be to gain. The answer is everything!
Who wouldn’t want their organization to have a competency in execution? Most executives and managing-leaders want something that takes execution to accomplish – they want increased sales, they want fewer errors, they want increased market share, they want to maximize profit, etc. You can get better at anything if you learn to get better at execution. By getting better at execution, you’ll be better at getting more sales, making less errors, increasing market share, maximizing profit, etc.
Getting better at execution is the solution to getting better at everything.
