Whose Objectives are You Pursuing, by Walter McIntyre
Every person and every organization has objectives and a purpose. I am not speaking of the ones individuals profess or those an organization posts on their lobby wall. It is the ones you observe in action that count. These objectives, which are always related to an agenda, are not that hard to see and hear if you are paying attention.
I am fortunate to have been involved in leading a business turn around twice in my career. In both cases individual agendas and objectives were subverting the business’s success. In both cases, changing the focus of specific individuals, or removing the individuals from the business, became the turning point for business success.
