As a team this is one area which many teams struggle with. Team members may all say YES at the end of a planning meeting, but is there follow-through?
Commitment is often about asking "Are you going to do it, no matter what?" or as my parent's generation would say "are you going to do it, come h*** or high water?".
In organizational cultures where lip-service and nods have become common place, commitment and follow-through become a definer of sustainable, and thriving organizations.
This week's question for you as a team to discuss is "What are you committed to?". This month I have shared a lot around goal setting. Goals are great, they look great and sound great, but we need to get into action to move them forward. As a team what are you going to do no matter what?
As I was starting my business almost 14 years ago, one of my business mentor's shared with me this quote which is attributed to HM Murray of the Scottish Himalayan Expedition of the 1800s . In my own work I continue to see the difference in results when I have fully committed, and when I have partially committed. I'll wrap up today's blog post with that quote here, which was our quote on Teams365 999.Enjoy!
