Executive staff often become frustrated at being overwhelmed by operational demands, when their real fulfillment comes from working in a more strategic environment. Indeed that is where they do their most valuable work.
The ability to do this requires being able to stand back from the day to day activity to analyse the gaps in strategic direction and to create a guidance mechanism that meets the needs of both the operational staff and executive management. This requires unity of purpose, clarity of roles and responsibilities, and a strong commitment to effective communication.
