The 3 key actions real leaders take every day

Get Kevin’s book here. He suggests 20% assess, 10% decide, 70% execute.

What I see over and over is leaders spending far too much time, energy, and money assessing and deciding, and nowhere near enough in executing. And worse, no agreed, transparent decision-making process being followed.

The consequence for such leaders is being run over by your competitors because they were quicker than you in assessing and deciding. And, they’re executing, while you’re still contemplating. You never catch up. Suddenly you’re out of business.

“How did you go bankrupt?
Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.”
Ernest Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises

Who will you become? What will you do next?

Possible Actions

1) Before you take a break ask your employees for feedback and feedforward about your assessing, deciding, executing.

2) Some time before you return to work, schedule an hour by yourself to develop an improvement plan and execute it from the moment you're back at work.

Be remarkable.
