LEVERAGE eCourse: This is the first of a four-part series outlining the L-E-A-D Formula™ from Laura Stack’s book, Execution IS the Strategy, which represent the Four Keys to Successful Strategy Execution. The First Key is LEVERAGE. This 13-week eCourse explores how to use your leaders (the input force), your team members (your levers), and your resources (your fulcrum) to your maximum advantage. Do you have the right people and drivers in place to achieve your strategic priorities? If not, then you have a talent/resource issue.
In the strictest sense, a lever is a simple machine with a rigid beam that pivots on a fulcrum to magnify an input force, so the resulting leverage can move heavy objects. The concept of leverage works equally well in the workplace. An efficient organization is one that operates with leverage already in place.
