I try and keep each daily message focused and concise so that you can take something away and apply it immediately. This week, however, I am planting seeds. Not in my garden, but in you.
I don’t think you will actually be able to act on each day’s content this week, but I do think it will invite you to reflect very deeply about how you improve your organization. Today through Thursday we will look at four big ideas. On Friday we will put those ideas together.
Big idea #1
Without the proper structures, the important work of growing your people gets displaced by the urgent demands of the present moment. The most important job you have (helping your people to get better) becomes an afterthought and a victim to the tyranny of the urgent.
Structures help leaders focus and provide accountability. Building structures that support your ability to serve your people and help them grow are essential to organizational improvement.
Do good and be well,
