The executive level should get involvled and conduct frequent department meetings with the department managers and all employees in that department. The objective of these meetings should be to discuss how current projects are going, the Listo's goals, and issues they are having in achieving those goals as it relates to the success of that specific department. This will give the departments a better understanding of which direction the Listo is going as well as facilitate them in functioning in a way that is more conducive to the company's goals and objectives.
