Final newsletter roundup of the year
Five years ago, many businesses had strategies with names like “Vision 2020”.
Well, 2020 is nearly here! As important as strategy is, of course, it’s human commitment (‘buy-in’, ‘engagement’, ‘accountability’, ‘ownership’) that determines whether vision becomes reality. Here’s a roundup of some of my recent newsletters on such topics:
A Christmas-Cracker Riddle. What’s your biggest asset, AND your biggest potential liability, yet doesn’t appear on your balance sheet?
Change: how to get away with heresy. Many change programmes fail to live up to the ‘vision’ expressed at the kick-off meeting. That suggests you should try something new. But is that just too risky?
Old Staff, New Technologies and Casually-Accepted Belief Systems. Casually-accepted beliefs that cause businesses to overlook growth potential.
Creating Space for Engagement. Tap into what your people know, but may not have been asked.
Set “Impossible but fun” challenges. One of the most engaging ways to pursue ambitious new levels of performance.
Thanks for reading. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a happy and successful new year.
