Start, Stabilise, Align, Stop or Grow
Every leader faces five choices every day on their activities, products, services and initiatives.
Most people think failure comes when choosing one option over another.
Generally it doesn't.
Failure actually comes in not choosing. Not taking action is failure. Failure to act is often driven by bureaucracy, indecision, lack of confidence or lack of information.
So, what are these highly important five choices?
Every day we can choose to;
1. Start something new
2. Stabilise something going wrong
3. Align activities that have lost their way
4. Stop activities that don't add value, or
5. Grow activities that do deliver value.
If you drive your daily activities around these choices and match the outcomes to your strategic pathways you will by nature dramatically improve your organisation.
