On Target-Stop The Up or Out Mentality
• Follow the WIN strategy: What's Important Now? Ask your employees the three most important things they do each day.
• Prove the significance of your employees. Make sure everyone on your team feels famous for something. You want them to always have a reason to come to work.
• Free up some time to think. Don't become too busy doing the work that you don't have time to lead. Leaders used to learn the most stuff. Now, it's better to learn the most important stuff the fastest.
Or as Dr. Berglas says: "Push back once in a while. Most organizations are looking for innovative thinking, whether they tell you so or not. So offer it."
