Personal Agendas versus Corporate Agendas
Briolett, Manager, Canada

Over the past 18 months I've observed a company go through some changes that some may deem extreme - the company is very unsettled. One area of interest for me was how the leadership of the organization was handling the changes. EMOTIONS DRIVE ACTION! What became very apparent is that the hidden agendas of the executive and upper management teams began to disrupt growth at all levels. I continue to watch the company and although it has a great deal of potential, I expect it won't last very long unless the senior management level changes. It seems that Personal Agendas have trumped the Corporate Agenda. I think that all companies are susceptible to this problem unless their employees are AI (and maybe not even then - XMachina). Since peoples objectives define who they are and their identity, some questions that we need to ask ourselves include:
  • What are our objectives?
  • Are our intentions self-centered?
  • Do we share them with our colleagues?
  • Do they impact the healthier whole or just our own hidden agenda?
  • What other questions and readings can be shared so that we can avoid this type of situation within our own organizations?
  • What leadership characteristics are needed to keep personal agendas at bay?
Note: As with all questions they need to be answered honestly for any good to come from them - that isn't always easy.
