30 minutes Physical Activity


No Comments

Aim for at least 30 minutes of movement per day. This is just as important for your mind as it is for your body. While we all know physical activity has been linked to numerous health benefits, new research shows it’s also integral to priming the mind for creative thinking and problem solving.

Sleep


No Comments

Sleep is one of the most productive things you can do. Period. If you’re not getting between 7–9 hours of sleep per night, you are shortchanging your physical, psychological, and emotional performance. Although it’s a bit paradoxical, neither your mind nor body grow while you are using them. They grow afterwards, while you are resting, and especially during sleep.

Leverage Data


No Comments

The most effective CEOs ensure that all of their companies’ managers manage their teams and operations as objectively as possible, and armed with as much information as possible. They accomplish this by leveraging measurable data to manage people’s performance, and utilizing data tools to understand as much as possible about the going-ons within their organizations. Don’t shoot blind – the more information that you have and can properly analyze, the better the decisions that you can make.

INSPIRATION, MANAGEMENT

Ensure that every manager has weekly 1-on-1 meetings with all of his or her direct reports

Expanding on the prior point, it can help performance if you ensure that all managers throughout your organization adhere to the discipline of weekly 1-on-1 meetings with direct reports – a practice that some consider to be the most important business management practice of all.

Weekly meetings not only help a firm practice CPM (described above), but, they also enable managers to understand and address obstacles impeding progress toward goals before they become big problems, as well as to learn about employees’ “small wins” and to provide recognition for such; recognizing “small wins” often improves employee performance as discussed by Professor Teresa Amabile in a recent TedX talk.

INSPIRATION

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.
