“Everyone’s working as hard as they can, weeks are going by, but we’re just spinning our wheels.”
“If we don’t get our people’s hearts and minds on this initiative, it’s probably not worth doing.”
"Why can't we just do this one thing? They said they would do it!"
"That conference was so inspiring. Too bad we'll be back to business as usual a week from now."
Getting your strategy off the ground can feel like getting a 100,000-pound airplane off the ground. (When it works, it feels like a miracle.) But, like flight, execution obeys natural laws.

Give your organization the tools to execute with excellence.
Executing your top priorities feels hard because it is hard.
