DO DAILY URGENCIES KEEP YOU FROM ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS?
Are your team goals ambiguous, unclear, and confusing to your people?
Are your teams unsure how to actually meet the goals you set?
Do you spend too much time managing the details instead of the big picture?
Does your team know the week-to-week progress it's making towards it's goals?
Struggle to find time to think, plan, and work on growth initiatives?
Do you feel like you're constantly reacting to issues you know could be avoided?
Is it hard to keep your team aligned on work that is constantly changing & evolving?
Are team members focused on what they can do to move the needle or does crises rule the day?
The desire to grow your business seems to be instinctive,
but the ability to successfully execute on your plans
is not easy...
There will always be more problems than you have time to solve.
There will always be more good ideas than you have capacity to execute.
And there will always be more to do than you have ability to complete.
The issue isn’t that you lack good people or good leaders.
The issue is that you lack the ability to consistently
take the action with the highest leverage.
I spent 15 years as a Lean improvement coach and practitioner. The most powerful concept I learned to consistently apply was the Pareto Principle, also known as the 80/20 rule.
The principle states that 20% of our actions produce 80% of our results. Conversely, 20% of our problems consume 80% of our time. This principle is well-known but not well-applied.
You don’t need to address all your problems,
just the 20% that suck 80% of your capacity.
You don’t need to do everything on your project list,
just the 20% that will have the biggest impact on your goals.
You don’t need to implement every idea your people have,
just the 20% that will create the greatest impact on your organization.
THE KEY IS KNOWING
WHAT THOSE 20% ACTIONS ARE
For any organization to be successful in the long term,
it must have the systems in place to enable its people
to make great decisions.
Leading in uncertain & ambiguous environments require we have a way to learn and adapt quickly and deliberately.
