The difference between a great company and an average company is how it deals with barely sufficient managers. If you continue to infect your organization with people who don’t drive excellence, you drag your company down.
Mediocrity kills companies. Organizations are quick to take action on bad leaders or ineffective leaders. Those, you can spot. But what stops a company from moving into greatness are all of the mediocre layers. People sort of accept that companies will have some great leaders and some average leaders — and that, as a starting point, is deadly.
