- Leadership implications – key learnings resulting from the realization that people are good.
In these chapters, Yoav highlights 12 practical management tips that will be summarized at the end of the third blog.
In the first chapter of the book, Yoav discusses:
- Why do decent and talented people often are unable to perform well straightforward tasks?
- Why do people get angry at each other at work?
- Is this a unique problem to an industry or is there is a fundamental challenge in common to all?
- What is the root cause of this issue?
As tasks in the modern economy become less structured and repeatable, and as organizations become more complex and matrixed, projects and other collective tasks become more difficult to execute, despite the fact that people generally are doing their best to do the right thing.
The root cause of this issue is the lack of synchronization between the various people and groups that are required to fulfil the task. This section will discuss the synchronization challenge in details, with examples from various industries on how it impacts performance.
