Today we're chatting to Justin Hughes, Managing Director of consultancy Mission Excellence and a former member of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, more commonly known as the Red Arrows.
Justin is a regular columnist on HRZone with a broad remit, covering organisational challenges from a fresh, operational perspective. You can also hear more from Justin on Twitter at @JustinMissionEx.
In this short video, Justin talks to you about:
- The problems teams face — and how they are magnified when there is misalignment between the multiple roles team members must play
- The dual-role of senior leaders – they spend most of their time leading functional units, then must come together to follow a CEO and run the business
- The problem of incentivisation when leaders must act in two roles
- How leaders can become better at playing both roles – leading a function and being a follower at senior level – in an organisation
…and more. So grab your hot drink and tune in now.
