In 2020 Populis, in collaboration with Macquarie University (Graduate Program) conducted an in-depth study on Leadership Effectiveness using Populis' Leadership Framework™️, a comprehensive high-performance leadership tool, which helps leaders to diagnose and effectively address the 50 critical principles of business success. 50 Australian company leaders were interviewed in the process, data was pooled and reviewed, and it was concluded that on average Australian companies are only operating at 74% of their potential.
What the study found was that CEOs whose teams were ready (resourced), willing (intrinsically motivated), and able (skilled and knowledgeable), executed their roles and duties with vigor and consistently delivered great results, and enjoyed longer tenures. It also found that most CEOS desired such teams but did not have a way to test if they were realizing their teams' potential. The Leadership Framework was the first time many of the CEOs got a true gauge of their performance as business leaders, that is beyond financial measures, project plan updates, and engagement scores. This is because business leaders don't get taught how to check the true impact of their leadership and find themselves blindsided at some point in their careers.
Management guru Peter Drucker said that "No matter how well thought out your competitive strategy is, if the people in your organisation aren’t ready, able and willing to put it into action, it’s worthless."

United States General George S. Patton once declared that “a good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week".
Such confidence in leadership as General Patton when there is great self-awareness and self-belief that comes from a track record of success. The Leadership Framework gave the organizations in the Macquarie University and Populis study true and useful insight into their companies' leadership and operations and pinpointed to the CEO where they must focus their attention to realize greater growth and their potential.
