This article from the Jamaica Sunday Gleaner hits on the same theme as my prior post on this blog – Caribbean executives need to be very careful not to overwhelm their direct reports with their ideas. This is especially true in planning situations.
How can CEO’s stop themselves from corrupting their strategic planning processes?
I wrote an article for the Trinidad Newsday that described the ways in which this happens (inadvertently) and what top executives can do about the problem.
A new column that I wrote for the Sunday Gleaner newspaper deals with the challenge that we Jamaican/Caribbean people have in setting and maintaining high standards.
Here in the Caribbean, we love achievement, but don’t appreciate that high standards need to be upheld by employees at all levels, in particular in relation to each other.
