It only makes sense that if you add new priorities to this year’s strategic agenda, you need conversations about what you are going to say no to. If you don’t, soon you’ll find yourself in the situation with too many priorities or that everything is a priority. Of course, this means nothing is a priority. How do you ensure that you do not overstuff your “strategy closet”?
You can do many things this year. Many will keep you busy and maintain the status quo. Other actions will serve as a catalyst and contribute to the highest vision you have for yourself and your business. Keep your focus at the crossroads.
How does your organizational culture encourage or discourage hoarding?
A lack of manageable priorities is a lack of leadership. You can be technology and priority rich at the same time. When you are, you’ve learned to thrive in the age of overload.
