1. Have your challenged your Vision, Mission and Purpose lately?
For too many businesses their vision, mission and purpose are ‘marketing’ pieces created for placement on their website or in a company brochure. These statements rarely drive the business, its people and its decision making forward. Review your own website and vision and/or mission statements. Are they easy to understand? Will they help transform your business? Will they help in decisions on strategies?
2. Are you transforming your star team members into head coaches?
High performers traditionally progress through the ranks of the organization and eventually start leading the business and teams. However it cannot be assumed star performers will be great at leading or managing teams. A great leader works with star performers to ensure they have the skills to transition to being the ‘head coach.’ These abilities are essential to guiding and mentoring fellow team members for high performance.
3. It’s all about change!
Pick up any management or business literature and you will read about the need for leaders to be innovative visionaries who adjust their products, business models and teams to improve their bottom line. Focusing on all of those areas at the same time can be difficult. Stand back from each of these specific issues and they all have a common theme – change. How will you improve your ability to implement change successfully?
