Example text

Informal leaders rarely have the kind of explicit qualifications that can be easily documented or communicated, much less evaluated. In fact, we find that the masters of the informal organization are close to the front line, and (somewhat surprisingly) seldom seen as high-potential fast-tracking candidates for top leadership roles. 4 Nonetheless, they play a critical if unrecognized role in the organization’s performance. But their primary source of motivation has to come from informal sources.

These mechanisms rarely take emotional issues into account, but that does not mean that people don’t react emotionally to them. They do—it’s just that their reactions are often more negative than positive. As a result, they adopt attitudes and engage in behaviors counter to the plan and to what seems rational to the makers of the plan. ” Didn’t they get the memo? However, rational clarity does not always create the emotional commitment that motivates a desired behavior. And when emotional factors are not taken into account, organizations fall short of their intended goals.

The lines and boxes that determine who reports to whom for what and that help align the decision making needed to achieve the organization’s strategy. • Processes and procedures. The written ground rules that determine the information and work flows needed to efficiently carry out the organization’s day-to-day tasks. • Programs and initiatives. Sets of goals, work plans, rules of engagement, and resources dedicated to achieving specific objectives within defined time lines. • Performance goals and metrics.
