Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 14JUN10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

When I lived in Reno, a consulting colleague, Tom Taormina, was contemplating writing a yet unpublished book titled “Perfecting Mediocrity.”

As I envision it merely from the proposed title, “perfecting mediocrity” is the dominant gravitational force for the vast majority of companies—good enough to survive but never great enough to thrive.

Is your company “perfecting mediocrity” or preparing to thrive? You know the answer. Are you ready to take action?

Thought for the week:

“If we live in a culture of mediocrity, there is a real risk we will ease back to our lowest performance. Only a small percentage of us are strong enough to sustain excellent performance in an environment of mediocrity.”

Erie Chapman, nationally renowned hospital/health care executive
