If you are an organizational leader, you know the global pandemic has led individuals to reassess their personal and professional goals. Like many, you may be going through a mass resignation and rehiring process.
Research conducted by McKinsey (Summer 2022) discovered that in the next few months, another 40% of employees plan to quit their jobs. Additionally, technology continues to excel and informed and savvy consumers are demanding more for less.
Corporate life becomes way more complicated as you pull together new teams, departments, and projects to respond to unprecedented demand. At the same time, you are probably cleaning up outdated systems that are being replaced by new technologies and processes. You are probably leaving redundant strategies behind as your teams are wayfinding towards their goals.
Newly formed leadership teams are facing great demands, and the current situation carries a heavier burden than most leaders have faced during their professional careers. This pressure means they are rolling up their sleeves and keeping their heads down as day-to-day tasks take priority over any type of strategic thinking and planning.
Managers are focused on damage control as they try to hit moving targets. The process of day-to-day corporate life is becoming disengaging, exhausting, and discouraging.
Leaders can try to imagine what may lie ahead. But the simple truth is we have no data on the future, so how can anyone plan? The average organization designs strategy based on some type of percentage increase from previous years. From that point, they develop a work plan we know will not be useful given the ever changing external and internal business environment.
As the dust settles, it is time to hit the reset button for 2023!
