It’s that time of year to plan anew, start fresh, and lead not only the team, but you in even better ways than before. To do that you need a plan and template or two, as well as clear instructions on exactly what to do. With this Monday Moment, you’ll gain all of that and more, with a step by step guide on your 2015 strategic planning process. Why wait? Well, some leaders do, but for these three reasons, let’s ensure, this is not you…
Some Leaders Procrastinate the Plan
They like the pressure that builds when deadlines loom and as a result, they’ll put off planning until not doing so would leave them doomed. The stress they create for all others in their wake not only slows down productivity but dramatically inhibits the teams and the leader’s creativity. Don’t be the procrastinating leader. Get started now with the eBook on creating your plan that will easily show you how.
Some Leaders Just Aim at the Plan
They aim to get it done. They aim and aim and aim and aim and then some. They’ll dot every “I” and cross every “t”, ensuring precision is a part of every decision. What they’ll wait for is the right solution to appear and they’ll wait forever if they have to, usually out of fear. This leader rarely takes action until they’re sure there’s no more need to find out more details or cross one more “t”. Don’t aim forever. Fire a time or two. Without the feedback from firing you’ll not know what to do…next on this great plan of yours.
Some Leaders Fly Around Without a Plan
Ha! This one sounds like a flying Wallendas, the trapeze artists from way back when, and yet, there’s some truth to the way it sounds if you’re leader is the one who flys around, by the seat of their pants, that is. The flying leader never plans and always takes things as they come. They don’t prepare and create a full blown plan like this guide shows how…they just wouldn’t dare. If this is you, your team is about fed up with you and the lack of direction. Resist this temptation and save the flying for the circus. Instead, get serious and take the time to sit down, meet with the team and download the ebook you now know you need.
