Blue Ocean Leadership

Unleash oceans of untapped talent and employee potential: The same way that Blue Ocean Strategy can create uncontested market space, Blue Ocean Leadership can unleash oceans of untapped talent and employee potential in organizations Reflect for a moment on how effective leadership is in your organization.

  • Is there a gulf between the potential and the realized talent and energy of your people at work?
  • If yes, how big do you imagine the gulf is — 10 percent, 20 percent, 40 percent or more of talent and energy that left unrealized?
  • How much better would your organization likely perform in terms of productivity, creativity, customer service, and employee happiness if you could close the gap?

The number is larger than most executives think. It is estimated that only 13% of employees are engaged at work worldwide.

   -$500 Billion annually in lost productivity in USA due to lack of employee engagement
-The worldwide figures are unimaginable

Although employees are also partly responsible for disengagement, leaders need to come up with ways to turn this situation around. Disengagement is up and down the ranks and it is caused by luck of ingenuity, creativity and energy.
Blue Ocean Leadership looks to the field of strategy to inform the practice of leadership.
