#263 Lead Your Way Out

There are no shortages of serious problems yearning to be solved. Pick one, then use this outline below to take action. Write down the problem or challenge that you need to solve. Describe the desired state that could exist without the problem. Describe why that state is desired. Create a specific and measurable goal to make your intention clear and tangible. Set criteria on how to find solutions to the problem. Brainstorm a list of alternative solutions. Narrow the list and pick the "best few" options. Assess each option's feasibility and potential risks versus gains. Reach a tentative agreement with the problem's stakeholders. Put some resources toward the best fallback plan. Firm up the final decision and announce it to those affected. Develop an action plan to go forward. Implement the action plan with confidence, commitment, and passion. Review, assess and celebrate progress. *** At Karl Bimshas Consulting, our vision is to create environments where great leaders outnumber lousy leaders, and better leadership is the norm, not the exception.
