Focus on goals

In order to reach your freshly set goals, let’s have a look at the overall objective. Whether your role is in recruitment, learning & development, sales or IT, you will work towards improved business performance.

First, you need to identify for your particular case what stands in the way of increased business performance. In other words, what are the barriers and motivators to reach your goals?

For instance, on an organisational level, communication and engagement are key. Josh Bersin describes the elaborate Feedback Architecture in Engagement 2.0. What could you even add on top of this?

In Employee Engagement 3.0 real-time sensing will increase the speed of feedback impact. Subsequently, the nudges and suggestions will accelerate behavioural change.

Secondly, on an individual level, speed is also of the essence. You planned, strategised and delegated. Finally, it is time to increase your efficiency.

Given these points, I selected for you articles on communication, feedback and efficiency to reach your goals. Make sure to listen to the inspiring Ted Talk by transformation expert Martin Danoesastro on “What does it take to build the fast, flexible, creative teams?”.
