"My brother and I hired CO2 Partners to help us transition the leadership at the top of our company. It was remarkable how we were able to cut through barriers and design a plan to execute. The plan literally took months instead of years. When you’ve been in a business for a long time, you sometimes need another perspective or, in the case of CO2, someone to ask the tough questions. I have recommended CO2 Partners to friends who have all reported back similar experiences, and I continue to see them as a go-to resource for issues related to talent development."

Team Building Training

Your guide only shows you the way. It's up to you to make the climb.

Every organization with two or more members is a system. Within a system, each individual is connected, directly or indirectly, to every other individual. As the number of members increases, the web of connections becomes more and more complex. Because of the systemic nature of a company or organization, any new individual necessarily impacts every other individual.

One of the most powerful tools a leader has is the ability to influence an organization's culture. When a leader fires an employee, or hires a new one, a message is sent regarding both the leader's values and the organization's standards.

As a leader today, you must decentralize the power and authority. With leadership opportunities, your employees will find personal meaning in the work they do. And they will do it well, provided you meet their needs. Your challenge—accommodating leaders on all levels of the organization—is daunting, maybe even terrifying. How do you align each employee’s needs with the needs of the organization? With so many leaders, so much independence, will chaos be far behind?

Not necessarily. Not if you build in some safeguards. It’s important to understand that total independence is often desired, but not always healthy. Individualism can lead to a sense of helplessness, and this helplessness can lead to depression. Despite fiercely independent childhood heroes like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, we want and need to be part of something greater than ourselves. We want the support of a community.

Authentic leadership requires allowing everyone to lead at times, but to instill one cohesive purpose, so that these leaders will work together and move in one overarching direction. For each and every project, ask yourself, “How does this contribute to our organization’s mission, vision, goals, and values?” Ask the same of your direct reports. And have them ask the same of their direct reports.
