Are You Trailblazing or Coattailing?

Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - Joe Kiedinger

We honor the various experts in our field that are bringing organizational health to the mainstream with cameos along the walls of our new Leadership Adventures bus. One of these quintessential authorities is Patrick Lencioni, author of The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business.

If you haven’t already read his book, please consider it a personal guidebook to getting started with org health within your own four walls. The advice he presents is what Prophit Co. has been touting for over ten years.

Kind of like that famous song lyric, “I was country when country wasn’t cool”—we’ve been promoting company culture before many people had ever heard the term. Heck, in some circles people thought I was talking about cheese in the late 90s and early 2000’s when I said ‘culture’.

We’re ahead of the curve and proud of it. I’d rather be a trailblazer than a copy of someone else! In fact, when I sat down with Craig Dickman, the Managing Director of TitletownTech, earlier this year, he shared the same sentiment. Dickman said, “You’re way ahead of the times, but I think the world is ready for you now and I find your timing interesting.”

The world is just waking up to the realization that the old way of doing business doesn’t cut it anymore. We need to develop and promote soft skills like emotional intelligence and form an understanding of dignity if we want our companies to be wildly successful.

Are you satisfied riding on others’ coattails? Or are you ready to step out and seek new solutions to make your organization healthier?


ACTION PLAN: We have the tools, coaching and curriculum to help your organization be more effective, profitable anddarn near stress-free. The results of an org health journey speak for themselves.
