For the past year Strategic Leadership Consulting has been a two person operation with me doing all of the content development and Mara working on scheduling the email, updating the website, and keeping me on track.
About four months ago we reevaluated our goals and how we have been working. Mara became the Inclusion Strategist and has taken over 90% of the social media posting. She is also tasked with developing and implementing strategies to meet the needs of younger and inexperienced leaders and to help what we do to be relevant to people from many backgrounds. She is also working on finding her own voice and developing her own content.
As part of this redesign we developed a weekly check-in meeting and a shared agenda. The agenda is simply a Google doc table with a couple columns. We add rows to add new tsks. Old tasks get greyed out and active tasks are always at the top.
For every task there is a deadline and a person responsible.
We meet weekly to make sure we are on the same page, to troubleshoot, and to plan for the future. This week, we are adding 20 minutes at the front end to do professional development around our book study.
Tomorrow I’ll share with you what is working, but today please reflect:
