In any game be it life or business “resources” & “will” are the two key components.
“Resources” is tangible and is the sum total of all financial metrics that measure the health of an organization.
“Will” is intangible and is sum total of all the human elements that measure the health of an organization.
Needless to say a short sighted leader focuses on resources over will at the detriment of the overall organizational health.
Resources cannot be ignored thought since this is what enables an organization to keep playing.
The need in the modern day organization is to strike a balance between the two so that a focus on “will” empowers the people to generate the “resources” to keep the organization live and kicking.
