Nothing is more motivating than belonging to a team of people who know the goal and are determined to get there.
A leader can influence two key things when it comes to producing results:
If a strategy is clear and you as the leader are driving it, your team won’t naturally engage to achieve it. However, a set of disciplines can enable you to produce exceptional results.
When it comes to setting goals, focus all your attention on one wildly important goal at a time. In doing so, you will execute better than if you spread yourself too thinly.
Choosing the right WIG:
You should apply most of your energy, time and resources only to the tasks and actions that drive your lead measure (the tasks directly related to achieving the goal.)
Lead measures will inform you of the likelihood of reaching the goal. If you’re unlikely to reach it, you can do something about it.
For example, a car breaking down is out of your control (a lag measure). However, you can maintain your car regularly to lessen a breakdown (a lead measure).
If the lead measure changes, the lag measure will also change.
A visible scoreboard ensures that everyone knows whether they are on the right track. It keeps the team motivated.
The scoreboard needs to clearly and simply outline the data.
It is important to create a consistent cycle of accounting for past performance and plan for the future. This can be done with weekly WIG sessions.
