For months now, I have been writing a series of blogs describing the basics associated with getting the “People Stuff” right. The People series followed another series of blogs describing the basics associated with getting everyone on the “Same Page.” Today’s blog marks the begging of a new series on the basics associated with getting and sustaining “Traction®.”
At the risk of stating the obvious, I wrote the Same Page series first because we have a better shot at attracting and retaining great people if we are offering meaningful work that is compelling and rewarding. People Stuff came next because getting and sustaining traction is a lot harder to do if you aren’t getting the people stuff right, and because traction without direction often leads to really crummy progress to energy ratios.
With regard to the “Traction Stuff,” over the next several weeks, I am going to write about a host of topics, including highly effective ways to capture and leverage data; how to become world class problems solvers; a simplified approach to creating consistent, dependable and scalable processes; and a bullet-proof meeting system that will consistently earn ratings of at least 9 out of 10 from every participant.
As always, I will endeavor to make each article timely, interesting, and actionable while building on the insights, tools, and disciplines we’ve already covered.
Until next time, may you build with passion and confidence.
