AND for today I wanted to share a copy of a one-page plan which can serve as useful template for team leaders today.
Success on teams requires that we don't only have a team series of goals but that individuals on the team also know what their top goals are and how the intersect with others.
The beauty of a one page plan is that is captures everything on one page. I n some of my former work I was responsible for annual plans that were more than 30 pages in length (even when font size was 7. Management By Objectives on steroids!). Today I work with a lot of my leadership clients on weaning things down to a one page format, even if we need to create a different plan every week.
I would invite you to download a copy of the one page plan and use it in your work. See what you find useful and what you don't like about the format.
As you will note, it is very simple:
- Description is a place for you to outline what the task is
- Timelines should include key milestones needed
- Enablers should include anything that's going to help the goal to be fulfilled
- Derailers should include anything that might take away from the goal
I would welcome your feedback and stories about how you use it with your team. please feel free to comment below.
