As we get older, our packs need to get lighter.
On our hike last week, Pam and I ditched a lot of gear and stripped our kits (the term for what you take in your pack) down to the essentials.
At multiple points during the hike, we evaluated our kits.
The distance we traveled was progress monitoring, which leaders are usually decent at.
However, evaluating how our kits were working out is process monitoring. Process monitoring helps us evaluate our systems. This is something leaders often miss.
