In running your business, project, or strategy where do you focus:
So this is a fundamental path you and your company are going to need to examine for moving into the next evolution of business. Will you be accepting mediocrity, status quo, and “well that is just the way we do things here” if dedicating too much of your focus on the NaySayers in these areas…YES! Business leaders, workers and agents of change really need to start looking at these fundamental activities to get desired outcomes.
Or will you be focusing the above things on the people and teams that demonstration:
2. Plan the Work, Work the Plan
3. Willingness to change
4. Bring solutions or options to the table
5. Want to be accountable and responsible for a body of work
By refocusing the attention, energy, and rewards to the bottom list you start getting in return the desired outcomes. Too many times I see the Naysayers winning in this game and then blown away when the leadership makes demands to have the bottom list. You can only wish in one hand for so long without cultivating and rewarding people and teams for the desired outcomes.
In my book if you don’t have something documented, modeled out, or dates and activities planned out you don’t have accountabilities and if you don’t have accountabilities you don’t get a say. Hence Naysay all you want you, I do not understand the words that coming out of your mouth!
This was just swirling in my head past few months. You did notice I gave NaySayers second billing in my title, right? What do you think?
