Putting together a strategy is always the easy part.
The hard part comes when you have to mobilize your entire team to take action around the strategy.
What happens when your plan isn’t clear enough for you to follow on a daily basis?
How does being held accountable by something or someone outside the business speed up the process?
What are the hiring mistakes most team leaders make when they find themselves overwhelmed?
In this episode, I talk about strategizing, implementing, and what you can do to mobilize your team to follow your growth plan.
Three Things You'll Learn
- As you constantly look for ways to improve yourself and your team, be careful not to hire too quickly.
- Have a plan before making any major changes. If you don’t have one, there are 3 things that will pull your focus off-course: fear, pleasure, and other people’s demands.
- It’s hard to stick to a plan if you don’t find a way to hold yourself accountable, or if you don’t feel responsible for the fate of the business.
If you want your team to execute your strategy, you have to make each effort measurable and break down the larger strategy into smaller steps.
The process has to be clear and easy to understand, and the goals need to be regularly tracked (daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly). Clarity and accountability are the keys to making implementation easier.
