If your organization has too many focus areas for improvement/growth, what can you do?
Here are some options:
Narrowing initiatives is really hard, because when we see a way to improve, we naturally want to attack it. The problem is that there are so many places where we need to get better, and that improving even one thing takes time – usually more time than we can imagine.
In the end, we become squirrels, chasing one shiny object until we catch a glimpse of a different shiny object and abruptly change direction, over and over again. At the end, we are exhausted, and all of those shiny objects are still out there.
The reality is, even if you just take care of one thing, your organization will be better. So, focus on that one thing.
Do good and be well,
