Patience is not about dragging feet or suffering fools. It’s about having the courage and wisdom to surround yourself with people who are bought in and engaged. It’s about taking time to focus and think, to rise above the system, to make methodical improvements that yields repeatable advances. Patience leads to consistency, which leads to stamina, stamina that drives incredible results. Patience is your organizational bedrock where motivated and engaged people want to work.

So what exactly is a Patient Organization?
Let’s start with what it is not.
Patience is not about dragging feet, suffering fools or allowing jerks to linger in your organization. It’s about taking time to focus and think, to rise above the system to make methodical improvements, and to prioritize problems and opportunities. Patience is about knowing when to strike, at lightning speed if necessary. Patience leads to consistency, and with consistency comes stamina, and with stamina comes incredible repeatable results. A Patient Organization attracts employees who love their work and their work place.
What it is.
A Patient Organization is one where two things have happened and continue to happen. On one hand leadership is 100% aligned to what yes looks like to the 7 fundamental questions in Walt’s book and on the other hand the company has installed and mastered an Organizational Operating System that allows every individual in the company to be able to consistently understand and align with yes to the 7 questions.
When these two things are in place, the organization can do something very powerful, it can make and keep a promise. A promise where they commit to surrounding their employees with people who can say: Yes, I Belong. Yes, I Believe. Yes, I am Accountable. Yes, I am Measured well. Yes, I am Heard. Yes, I am Developed. Yes, I am Balanced.
When you can make and then keep your promise you will become a Patient Organization. The organization you always dreamed of having.
