What Are You Working on?
2020 has been unlike any year we have seen. And it is not over yet. Open your calendar and look out to December. How do you feel as you think about the next few months? As your coach, I challenge you to engage in three conversations this month that will help ensure you are working on the right things, and, perhaps more importantly, model intentionality and motivation for those you lead.
1. Clarify the vision. Define the milestones you aim to achieve. Sit down with a few people on your team (or across the video screen) and recommit to including the purpose you are working toward.
2. Check reality. You can do this in your journal by writing down what you’ve missed so far this year. Then wonder what might be coming that you want to start preparing for “just in case.”
3. Ask for help. Let someone in as your accountability buddy so you can work through the tough days and celebrate the good ones. Call or e-mail someone now, tell them what you’re working on, and ask them to check in with you next week. (I’d love to hear what you’re working on—send me a note at: email@example.com)
