Purposeful Execution

During a recent discussion with a client, he shared that the coming year was not really about setting new paths or strategies. Would his organization be doing so? Absolutely – in fact, they were in the midst of some large strategic shifts at the time we met. The key to his team’s success, in his opinion, lies not in charting the new course, however.
