The Three Tenets of Modern Business

The most successful leaders standout by applying the appreciation principle in their own best way and sustaining shared-view in the seven areas of significance.

The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated - William James

The Seven Areas of Significance

1. Where we are now (reality) (what is) (non biased appreciation of the remarkable, the great, the good, the bad, and the ugly)

2. Where we’re going (possibility) (what can be) (Idealistic yet pragmatic articulation of our Dreams|Goals|Ambitions)

3. Why we’re going there (purpose) (our reason for being in business, how we’re creating more leaders, and fulfilling #1. role of leadership i.e. unleashing and enhancing people’s gifts)

4. How we’ll get there (strategy) (ability to describe our strategy in a single sentence, and everyone’s buy-in to it)

5. Who will do what and when (execution) (roles, plans, communication and conversations, 70:20:10 framework adaption, quality of coaching and mentoring, meaningful meetings)

6. How we’ll know we’re on track (milestones, lead measures, processes) (how well we determine and use the metrics that really matter to us)

7. How we’ll behave along the way (culture and values) (buy-in to the behaviours of our values, and the quality of our appreciation and accountability conversations)

There's a simple diagnostic here that you can download and complete with your team to determine where you are now and where you need to move to.

Be remarkable.
