Organizations Hire The Guru
Harrison Monarth has speaking engagements and clients internationally. He has been exposed not only in multi-cultural environments but to varying company cultures as well. Surprisingly, almost all organizations who hired him, share the same objectives of bettering their leaders.
Organizations want to learn about helping their leaders show up with more confidence, building their personal brand, having an impact on people and having influence.” – Harrison Monarth
Aside from adapting to the company culture and the environment of his clients, Harrison points out the importance of asking a lot of questions on the needs, challenges, and goals of the client.
The Gap Between Intention and Impact
Based on Harrison’s experience, most of the time, the CEOs and the employees have misaligned values. Some CEOs have the best intentions in implementing a certain culture, but not necessary weighed in on the impact it may have on him/herself or the employees in general.
“As the CEO, you set the culture—how you behave, what you communicate and don’t communicate. People are getting their cues from you. The root of this is the gap between intention and impact.” – Harrison Monarth
To cite an example, a CEO espouses the importance of feedback and yet is intimidated by responses from subordinates or likewise gives sugar coated remarks to employees. He points out that to be able to influence people, one must have a good grasp of how the company culture functions.
