If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the choice of this picture is worth a thousand words. BUT—
You don’t have time to read a thousand words.
Here is the capsule version:
Life can suck the best of us into the sand. It’s a great escape. As a Leader, it’s a luxury you can’t afford.
Leaders who choose to give disciplined, consistent, wide-awake and focused attention to the following, will experience success:
- Drive a Strategic Plan that is team authored and reviewed quarterly.
- Understand the individual interests, underlying needs, stressors, and career direction of their direct reports. We are certified Birkman consultants and can help in this assessment.
- Build a Team that meets weekly to discuss how they are moving their Department forward to meet the goals and action plans.
