I enjoyed a leadership development day today, learning strategies about how to develop our leadership skills.
One of my favourite messages from the day was "Just Do It +".
How many times have we asked a colleague to do a job and then let them get on with it without clarifying exactly what is meant?
Just Do It + means to agree a shared understanding. What exactly did we mean when we asked them to do it? It means that expectations are clear and both parties understand what is involved. Just Do It + means that deadlines can be agreed. It means that problems can be pre-empted before they surface.
