4 Disciplines of Execution
The Covey organization created a succinct, powerful process called 4 Disciplines of Execution. It is a proven process to use very engaged, empowered employees to apply a 4 step process that accelerates business improvement. NRL provides the foundational leadership mindsets that allows the 4D managing process to make a huge difference in your organization. Covey has many great resources you may want to review. A key concept of the 4D process is to understand the difference between the everyday Whirlwind of things that must be done to the longer term goals needed to drive continuous improvement. NRL provides tools and concepts to help teams make shifts in focus to ensure they balance the important, longer term goals while dealing with the demanding day-to-day urgent tasks.
Kip Tindell is the CEO of The Container Store. The Container Store is a publicly owned retail chain. Many publicly owned companies focus first on the shareholder and are often short-term profit focused. The Container Store has a different philosophy. They invest highly in employees first who then drive customer satisfaction which in turn improves the shareholders return. NRL believes that companies must invest strongly in the employee through development, engagement, and empowerment. These employees will then own the work and bring their best to the team each day. While cost focus may drive short term upward results, only by following the principles in Uncontainable, which also align with NRL, will a company be successful longer term.
