Will You Chastise Bureaucracy in Your Company?

In one of his Christmas speeches, the Pope lectured Vatican leadership on the wasteful bureaucracy it fosters.  Feeling indispensable, the pathology of power and excessive planning are just a few of the scathing observations made public.

Pope Francis also said “”a church that doesn’t try to improve is like a sick body.”

Replace “church” with “organization” and the frustration remains accurate for businesses.  And for not-for-profits.  And for government agencies.

Look at leadership behaviors in your organization.  Could you make the same observations about yours as did the Pope about his?

I love leadership in action.  So do followers. If you want your company to succeed, be willing to admit to weaknesses and do something about addressing them.
