Our Plans Need Focus


The December cold snap left most of us with a lot of soggy stems, mushy ground cover, and sad-looking flower beds.  Now we must clear the debris, let in the sun, water the roots, cultivate the soil, and set in some fresh plants.  Give our plants a little attention on a consistent basis and it’s amazing how they grow.


Sometimes our business needs some of the same treatment.


For Example:


We need to sort through our priorities and shine a spotlight on the most important initiatives.


Establish a process with key leaders from each functional team to brainstorm which priorities need to move forward, and collectively set sequence according to urgency and importance. Review trends and targets using key metrics. Collectively suggest and identify lead indicators that drive numbers as these are predictive and influenced by employees’ efforts. Establish the top priorities at an overall business level, and set a regular cadence of meetings for updates and accountability.


Assign a driver for each and empower them to pour resources into the effort.


Equip and encourage the key people responsible for pushing the initiatives forward with the talent and resources needed to accomplish the goal.


Mix in collaborative perspectives and energy to feed the initiative.


Diversity of thought makes an organization stronger by providing varying perspectives and fresh ideas. Collaborative teams build momentum and create the energy needed to move key initiatives across the finish line.


Be ready to embed fresh ideas and techniques.


Listen for and embrace the innovative ideas and methods that are created through the collective efforts of your team.



Every season has its challenges, yet the disciplines that produce growth do not vary.

Our plants need water, and our plans need focus.
