Don’t Get Stuck, Adjust Wisely: How to Execute 30-Day Cycles of Improvement
Delivering results across many people, requires actions and processes to be simple, sound and accessible.
How consistent is your team in following-through on actions, monitoring impact and communicating progress in order to achieve shared goals? How do you help your team get unstuck when they get stuck? In this roundtable, Dr. Pat Greco shares tools and templates for executing improvement cycles.
In the discussion groups, Pat challenged leaders to think about daily actions and measures that they’d like to improve:
Identify one area you really want to focus on in the next 30 days and why it is important.
What level of execution is your team at right now? How could you move to the next level?
What is one idea or tool that could help your team when they get stuck?
How Do I Fit In? One of the most effective ways to help our teams really know what we're asking them to achieve is to draw clear connections for them. It is important to help each team member see how his/her daily work connects to the goal.
Leader Action Plan As leaders collaborate to discuss upcoming goals that will cascade down to their teams, we recommend completing a leader action plan to clearly define next steps and monitor progress. Leaders and individuals can also use this template to provide clarity and progress monitoring around their upcoming action steps, during team huddles.
