Core Theory of Success
Responsible leaders should ask themselves, “What good theories do wehave that provide practical guidance for ensuring our organizations futuresuccess?” The more clearly you can articulate your organizations theoriesabout what leads to success, the more deliberate you can be aboutinvesting in the elements that are critical to that success.One such core theory would be based on the premise that as the
quality of the relationships
among people who work together increases (high teamspirit, mutual respect, and trust), the
quality of collective thinking 
improves(people consider more facets of an issue and share a greater number of different perspectives). When the level of thinking is heightened, the
quality of actions
is likely to improve (better planning, greater coordination, andhigher commitment). In turn the
quality of results
increases as well.Achieving high quality results as a team generally has a positive affect onthe
quality of relationships
, creating a virtuous cycle of better and better results.The most important point about this kind of systemic theory is that thesuccess is not derived from anyone of individual variables that make up theloop, but rather 
from the loop itself 
. [This]…forces us to pay attention to howall the variables are doing and how each is affecting the others in the loop-Daniel Kim, (2001).
