1. Think: Mastering the Art of Strategic ThinkingIn the early phases of managing an organization, most of us don’t even know how to think strategically. As leaders, we must master the art of thinking in terms of systems. Here’s how:
  • Systems Thinking: Recognize that an organization is like a machine composed of multiple interconnected parts. Understand how each part impacts the whole.Desired Outcome: Start by defining your desired outcome. Consider all possible outcomes and determine the most efficient path forward.Measurement: Select a reasonable form of measurement to track progress.

  • Commitment: Execution requires commitment. Stay disciplined and follow through.Monitoring: Regularly monitor progress. Adjust as needed based on real-time feedback.Collaboration: Work with your team to ensure alignment and accountability.
  • 4. Pivot: Adaptability and Agility
  • Flexibility: Be open to change. If something isn’t working, pivot and adjust your approach.Learn from Failures: Failures are opportunities for growth. Analyze what went wrong and adapt.Continuous Improvement: Success isn’t static. Continuously improve and refine your strategies.
