We all need goals, but they are only worthwhile if they help us take daily actions that help us achieve the organization’s purpose. Operationalizing goals means identifying core strategies and executing them every day.
I have expounded before that if I am writing and sharing things that help people, then I know I am making progress on my goals. In essence, what I do each day is more important than the goal I am trying to achieve.
We looked at goals and set strategic behaviors last month, but are you executing those strategic behaviors this month?
Of course, I’m going to suggest that developing your people is the most important way to meet your goals, so what are you doing on a daily basis?
The minimum is doing 5-minute coaching. Echoing yesterday’s theme, doing only 5-minute coaching isn’t ideal, but it may be enough.
