FORBES – The Benefits Of Simplicity


No Comments

Being an effective manager is not about mastering mysterious and complicated methods.  It’s about keeping it simple and following old, proven, and even obvious ideas. What made a good leader in the past is still what makes one today: being competent, caring, and benevolent.

WEEKSHEET, win every week….


No Comments

A calendar week is the ideal unit to break your goals into. It allows you to achieve significant steps forward, and allows for mental and physical recovery over the weekend.

WEEKSHEET is a way to achieve your goals. It is not an alternative to your agenda, nor a to-do list. Every Friday close your week by preparing your next week’s WEEKSHEET. We encourage writing the WEEKSHEET by hand, this way you force yourself to review the key goals every week. Copy-pasting results in complacency. Stay sharp, stay human, take 15 min per week on Friday afternoon to program your mind for success in the next week.

Manage execution towards objectives by utilizing Continuous Performance Management


No Comments

Many of the best CEOs today utilize Continuous Performance Management (CPM) throughout their organizations. CPM refers to performance management processes that occur on an ongoing basis, rather than via some annual or biannual appraisals. Near-term objective setting done as part of the CPM process should be based on the strategy and alignment discussed above. CPM need not be time intensive – many successful CEOs simply request that every manager meet with her reports on at least a weekly basis to review performance – often in an informal meeting that lasts for no more than 10 minutes. These meetings give workers a chance to educate management on where employees  stand with respect to each relevant objective.

Create proper alignment of objectives across the company


No Comments

​If you are not already aligning objectives across your company and aligning team and group objectives to the corporate strategy – make sure to do so ASAP. Consider that if if you do not align objectives across your organization you could have people replicating one another’s work or, even worse, “rowing in opposite directions.”

INSPIRATION

Establish clear objectives for every business unit and team 


No Comments

​Having a clear overall strategy is not, on its own, sufficient – you must ensure that each department and team within the organization knows what its objectives are, and how those objectives relate to, and align with, the overall strategy.

​One way that many great CEOs ensure proper alignment is to use the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) method, in which management defines both objectives and the measurements against which performance towards those objectives will be measured (the key results). To learn more about OKR, please see the relevant Google Ventures video.
