What Successful Executives Do Differently Part II

In a Harvard Business Review video, leadership consultant, Ron Carucci, claims that 50-60% of executives fail in their first executive role. He studied successful executives to find what they did differently.

Carucci discovered four key factors. The second factor in our series is “Context.” Successful executives do the work necessary to gain understanding of trends in their culture, industry, and within their organization.

Having context will enable you to make wiser and more informed choices.

In 1 Chronicles 32, the author credits one family with understanding the importance of context when he wrote, “The sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do.”

If you’re in a new role, invest time in studying trends and gaining context so you can better serve your organization.
