Ultimately, says Yamashita, (who the article’s about) it’s all about getting unstuck as an individual or an organization. He believes that 85% of all companies and more than half of all people are stuck, a condition that isn’t defined by declining market share, falling productivity, or losses on an income statement. Being stuck, says Yamashita, is all about human feelings–not financial measurements. It’s about feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, directionless, hopeless, battle-torn, worthless, or alone. Why does that matter? “The most successful leaders understand they must win the hearts and minds of employees in a way that is true, authentic, and real,” he says. “If you get those human components right, the performance of the system can work. Without them, you’re nowhere.”
