Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I am excited to welcome Michael Canic to the What’s Next Podcast! Michael is the President of Making Strategy Happen, a consulting firm that helps committed leaders turn ambition into strategy, and strategy into reality. For the past 20+ years, he has instituted the structure and discipline of his strategic management system in organizations across North America. Previously, he managed the consulting division at The Atlanta Consulting Group, and prior to that held a leadership role at FedEx. He earned a Ph.D. in the Psychology of Human Performance from the University of British Columbia and is a former national championship-winning college football coach–he is also a member of Marshall Goldsmith’s 100 Coaches global initiative. His new book, RUTHLESS CONSISTENCY: How Committed Leaders Execute Strategy, Implement Change and Build Organizations That Win published in September of 2020.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… leaders and organizations that are taking on too much and need to refocus for success.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… It’s easier to say than do...that’s why 70-80% of strategic change initiatives fail. So, what can you do? Well, Michael has a few questions for you? Have you developed the right focus - a concise, compelling, clear-focus? Have you created an environment of both engagement and performance where you can capture people’s hearts as well as their heads? And importantly, have you built the right team? That’s what MichaelCanic is here to talk about. That, and how important it is to be ruthlessly consistent when going about it.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Sometimes we get so enamored with the BIG things that we have to do that we forget the little things, and consistency is one of those “little” things that is key!
