Why Some Organizations Succeed While Others Fail

Why Some Organizations Succeed While Others Fail: "

Last year, at the Chick-fil-A Leadercast, I had the privilege of interviewing Jim Collins, author of the mega-bestselling business book, Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap … and Others Don’t. Since he is so research-driven in his approach, I expected him to be dry and academic. However, I found him surprisingly passionate and engaging.

In this 10-minute interview, I talked to him about his most book How the Mighty Fall: And Why Some Companies Never Give In. I asked him five questions:

  1. In the book, you talk about “markers” that demonstrate when a company is moving into “Hubris Born of Success” (chapter 1 in the book). Are there also markers that demonstrate when an individual is moving into ego?
  2. If humility is so critical to sustained success, what happens if an organization’s primary leader doesn’t have it? Can the organization succeed or is it doomed?
  3. Can a company diagnose itself in terms of the five stages of decline or does it take someone from outside the organization to do it?
  4. Since greatness can be twenty or so years in the making, what are the markers that tell you whether or not you are on-track?
  5. How do leaders help their organizations acknowledge progress, so they keep getting more of the behaviors that lead to sustained success?

This year’s Chick-fil-A Leadercast promises to be the best yet. It will be held live in Atlanta next week on May 6. It’s not too late to participate. This year’s speaker list is amazing. It includes:

  • Muhtar Kent, CEO of Coca-Cola
  • John C. Maxwell, Bestselling Author
  • Seth Godin, Bestselling Author
  • Mack Brown, Head Coach of the Texas Longhorns
  • Dave Ramsey, Radio Talk Show Host
  • Erin Gruwell, Founder of Freedom Writers Foundation
  • Dan Cathy, President & COO of Chick-fil-A
  • Sir Ken Robinson, Bestselling Author

You can attend the live event in Atlanta or attend a simulcast of the event in your own city. For example, in Nashville, where I live, you can attend the simulcast at Oasis Church.

I will again be hosting the backstage interviews with all the speakers for the event. I hope to see you there.

Question: What are some of the reasons you think some organizations succeed while others fail? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
