ABOUT SEASON SEVEN:
In this season, we’re going to be talking about the timing of leadership, which is all about answering the question of when. Time is a precious resource, a nonrenewable resource. So, learning how to use time, leverage it, and turbo charge it, both in our life and in our career, can be a game changer.
DISCUSSION GUIDE FROM TODAY’S EPISODE:
- Strategy should lead to wins (new customers, more market share, most followers). It needs to be measured.
- A model in four quadrants; Foresight (upper right), Insight (upper left), Hindsight (bottom), Blindsightedness (bottom) = helps visualize the strategy of time.
- Leaders, by the way, must live in this upper half of the four quadrants…
- Operating with insights and foresight helps you learn WHEN to act, and WHEN NOT to act.
- Or, when you be proactive, and when to be reactive.
- This model allows you to at lease be in a position to be in the game.
- Choosing NOT to act is itself a strategic move. But there is a difference between it not being the right time to act, not knowing you should act, or being too afraid to act.
- Planning (both short-term and long-term) are a critical element with strategy (and timing).
- The speed of business is much quicker than it used to be, meaning that our strategy around time must be very agile.
- Where do you draw the line, and how do you manage, investing time on short-term verses the long-term thinking/planning?
- Strategy of Time is similar to sports, and managing the clock. We discuss the parallels…
