Activity: As a team, think about one of your most important goals for the remainder of the year. Write it down on a whiteboard/flipchart.
1. Consider that you were looking at it from the 30,000 foot view - like you were sitting in an airplane a looking at it - What do you notice about it? Anything different? What do different team members notice?
2. Consider now you are down on the ground level. What do you notice now? Individually? Collectively?
3. If you now switch perspectives, how does this goal connect to the strategic goals of the organization?
4. Tactically, what is important about these goals? Any new information about the goal and action steps associated?
What else is important for you to note about this goal and related action steps?
