Does your organisation or parts of it feel siloed?
Has this got worse - or better - during the months of WFH?
If so, you can start to change it - or at least take responsibility for the bits that you can influence and change.
Silos are most often created when we only see our needs and perspectives or the purpose and priorities of the organisation are not clear or they’re in conflict.
I often see ‘silo mentality’ in leaders who are hugely loyal to and want the best for their teams so they’re blind to the bigger picture. A kind of ‘we’re right and you’re wrong’ mentality kicks in.
Their intention is often positive but the impact it has is not.
Years ago I worked in a siloed organisation - one part of it working to ‘pile it high, sell it cheap’ and the other on providing a quality, exciting, affordable experience for our customers.
Sometimes we were able to do both and it worked brilliantly
But much of the time we didn’t.
