Look, my side of the aircraft didn’t crash!

β€œπ‹π¨π¨π€, 𝐦𝐲 𝐬𝐒𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐑𝐞 𝐚𝐒𝐫𝐜𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭 𝐝𝐒𝐝𝐧’𝐭 𝐜𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐑!”

Now that sounds outright weird.

Yes – Your side of the aircraft is intact.Β Irrespective, it’s time to grab yourself and rush out of the aircraft.

The aircraft has crashed & the flight is over.

The End. La Fin. Das Ende.

I sometimes hear people saying that same weird statement in an official setting in different ways.

β€œMy business unit is doing very well. It’s that β€œother” department that isn’t pulling enough weight and producing results.”

That very familiar β€œWe are OK; they are NOT OK” rhetoric!

Haven’t you heard those allegations from the Pre-Sales team about the Sales team that the sales opportunities aren’t well qualified?

The Sales team stacking claims against the Marketing team about the lack of demand generation efforts to produce good leads?

The Purchase team blaming the Finance team for not releasing the money on time.

And the list can be frustratingly longΒ in some companies.

Not realizing that if the “aircraft crash lands,” the flight is over for 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞.

If the company doesn’t grow and produce profits sustainably, its curtains down for every department, irrespective of the inflated claims that one makes about the stellar performance of their own function.

While there could be many reasons why people don’t take ownership of the collective failure of a company’s lack of performance, one of the main reasons is that the various silos within companies are πƒπˆπ’π‚πŽπππ„π‚π“π„πƒ with each other.

There is less or misalignment to a common purpose. There is a lack of shared goals & objectives between functions. Incentives are not designed for collective success. Rewards & recognitions are not awarded for team achievements.

β€œπ‚π¨π§π§πžπœπ­ 𝐭𝐑𝐞 πƒπ’π¬πœπ¨π§π§πžπœπ­πžπ.”

That is our manifesto.
That is the core aspect of every client engagement at 𝐂𝐔𝐒𝐏 π’πžπ«π―π’πœπžπ¬.

If you are the leader of a company and feel that some parts of your organization aren’t β€œconnected” to your company’s overall vision and purpose, give us a call.

We can chat to understand if there is a mutual fit to β€œConnect the Disconnected.”

Our earnest efforts would be to ensure that no one in your organization should cry out, β€œLook, my side of the aircraft didn’t crash!”

ps: I sincerely pray that there are no aircraft crashes & hope no one gets grievously injured. The analogy has been used only to illustrate the idea.
