S3E3: “There’s not enough ownership in my team.”

As a CEO or other senior leader, do you think your team is not taking ownership of problems?

Today we’re continuing Season 3, focused on High Value-Creating Leadership Teams.

Richard Medcalf and Davina Stanley discuss what causes high achievers to fail to take ownership of problems. We also discuss specific strategies for CEOs who want to increase ownership in their team.

You'll learn:

  • Why lack of ownership in your executive team is as much about you, the leader as it is about the person in question 
  • What specific model you can use to help you get your team to take more responsibility
  • How to shift meeting etiquette to improve ownership

“It’s better to be 60% right with 100% ownership than to be 100% right with 60% ownership."
