It's so painful to see the low hanging fruit but be unable realise even that

ProsWorking with worlds best technology & some of the most talented people I've ever encountered - their passion for the company and their jobs makes the business the success it is

ConsThere is a HUGE gap between the SLT and Operational mgmt. The EDs in TEG are unable to work together as their personal agendas rule. Of the EDs, I can't think of one that has the necessary people and leadership skills to transform the business to meet the SLT goals. David Thodey needs to seriously reconsider his senior bench and throw out the one below that level entirely.

Advice to Senior ManagementDavid Thodey and Paul Geason need to get an accurate and direct line to the rank and file - they need to really understand what's going on in the business and how it's the bureaucracy and pettiness of management that is holding the organisation back. Check your managers' EQ and people skills - most are a vacuum. How can you have inspired and meaningful leadership when you lack leaders?

    No value in personal growth & recognition combined with high school bullies & fights
