Building the plane while flying it might sound like a clever idiom, but it can be an absolute disaster when applied to something as complex as a company and its employees.
Taking this approach is how you end up with a workplace riddled with burnout, mental breakdowns, low morale and a level of work toxicity that could give a group of back-stabbing 7th grade girls a run for their money.
Leon’s Playbook Strategies are meant to encourage leaders inside organizations to take a long-term approach to the performance and well-being of their employees.
If Playbooks Activities are the fire extinguishers within the workplace that quickly lower the heat, Playbook Strategies are long-term measures you put in place to avoid the heat all together.
“Hey folks, we’ve noticed a lot of fires have been happening in the breakroom. New rule: no more smoking in the breakroom.”
(And, yes, we totally recognize it’s 2021 and MadMen is no longer a thing. But, hopefully you get the metaphor.)
In closing Playbooks Strategies are frameworks, philosophies and long-term strategies you’re thoughtfully selecting to ensure you’re building a company where people don’t hate their jobs.
And, like everything we do at Leon, it’s all measured. We don’t just recommend you move to a “4 day work week” as if we’re some internet blogger guest posting on Forbes who has never worked at a company a day in his life. Instead, we give you the data to back up why that may or may not be a good decision for your organization.
