Goals Goals Goals
Jim Collins says you need to have 'BHAGS" - Big Hairy Audacious Goals. This is TRUE.
Let's look at the cat....how is he going to eat what I have to think is an ostrich. He has figured out that it starts with one bite at a time.
Hope that you have spent some time with your team or your leader understand what you all want out of 2012. What are the overall goals and how does this align with the company mission...not to mention values? Take this to another level - how does this apply to you personally? Where do you fit?
As a developing leader, it is critical to ensure that alignment is in place - otherwise, people will be working in silos or willy-nilly on anything that suits them....not necessarily in unison with the focus of the goals.
Do you have BHAGS? Why do you think you should?
I have them. I have BHAGS because they make me focus on every step that it can take to get me there....everyday.....no matter what. And you know, with hard work, BHAGS need to be reconstructed to become EBHAGS - even bigger hairy audacious goals. Get started. 2012 is just around the corner.
