I was attending a conference this week, and listened to a team sharing how they’d led some spectacular changes in their organization.
They explained that they’d made a commitment to their team as they started:
- We are going to do work that matters: “If it’s not important, if it doesn’t matter to you and resonate with why we’re all here, we won’t do it.”
- We are going to do practices that work: “We are going to measure our work. If there isn’t evidence that it is effective, we won’t do it.”
We all aspire to these principles–two simple ideas that are easy to defend, and that we can always be glad to be held to, or to hold ourselves accountable to. May these be true for all of us in our work.
Stay encouraged, and have a great week!
