Picture this: you gather with your executive team and have a great energetic conversation about what needs to happen in your organization. Seemingly everyone contributes innovative ideas and leaves the meeting all jazzed up. And yet, in the end, nothing happens. That ever happen in your organization?
Even though everyone left the room pumped up and excited, there still wasn’t enough of a plan to make something happen. Part of the issue relates to the lack of accountability that might exist in your organization–you can read my other post about that here–but there is usually another missing fundamental element as well: you never put any dates down with all those great ideas you came up with.
