Larry Dean, Lead Supervisor, Miracle Mile Aerospace. Larry finds herself sitting in his home office updating his resume. He had recently lost his job as a Lead Supervisor at Miracle Mile Aerospace. Six months earlier, he was on a roll doing what she thought was being asked of him as a responsible department leader. The successful implementation of the new SAMP initiative within his department would have most likely earned him a promotion and a much-needed salary increase. However, today, as Larry painfully reflects upon how he landed in this dreadful situation, he now clearly sees “what he did” and “what he didn’t do”. He is now constantly reminded of a factor that is critical to the establishment of department-level “goals”, “strategy” and “tactics” within any organization. It is a factor that should never be ignored. He is also reminded that the consequences of leaders “winning the wrong battles” internally can be devastating for themselves and their organizations.
