In the introduction of the Christian business reference architecture notes, part one, I said this: “who you are as an individual will determine more your success in running your business than the tactics and methods you employ on a day-to-day basis.”
I would now like to further extend that and posit this core principle of the Christian business reference architecture:
Your personal dysfunctions will be imprinted on your business or the organization that you are leading and will become areas that you and others will have to manage.
This might sound harsh, but it is not. It is simply the way things work. Organizations usually take on the personalities, characteristics, and methods of operating and thinking of their leaders. Because the leaders of any organization exert wide influence and control, it stands to reason that the strengths and dysfunctions that they bring to the table are eventually absorbed into the organization.
So let’s take a look at the business reference architecture and learn how our dysfunctions as leaders can be surfaced within an organization. Will first look at the upper layers of the business reference architecture and discussed the core ideology the strategic plan that emits from the vision and how the mission statement will work within your organization. Will also discuss potential clash points that could surface depending upon the type of dysfunction that you bring to the organization as its leader.
There is much to discuss, so let’s get going.
