It’s February and you’ve got most of the year still ahead. See if you can answer these questions clearly and briefly:
- What is your strategy?
- What is the over-arching vision you have for your company?
- What is the major theme, or themes, you want your people to run hard at this year?
- What are your top three priorities for the company?
Your people want to know how to move forward, what to base their day-to-day decisions on, and how to know they are on-track. If you’ve put together a simple roadmap or strategy, it will be found posted in their work areas, cubicles and offices. More complex strategies are in PowerPoint presentations or binders and they rarely get looked at. So if you can answer the four questions above, make sure your people know the answers too. If you can’t answer them, you need to get to work. As I said, most of the year is still ahead.
