As we prepare for 2020, take some time to ask yourself some key questions. When many think of goals, they become overwhelmed by the sheer number of goals they believe they “should” have.
I’ve asked my own leadership team these basic questions. Try them on for size…
What things have you identified that you need to change to make you a better manager of people?
- What plans do you have in place to improve on that?
- How can I help in that process?
What are 2 to 3 things your team – if they really focused on – could make the most positive impact in 2020?
- What will be your role to help them achieve this?
- How will your team learn about these focal points?
Take time to document your answers to these questions. If you lead managers, ask them how you can support them in this process. Then in coaching sessions, regularly review these questions with your team to keep them on track.
Your doesn’t need dozens of goals. They need focus. And your support.
Make 2020 a great year for your team !
