We’d also like to improve the results of our business.
It is difficult to improve when we get caught in the routine of doing our normal day-to-day business … some people refer to this trap as ‘same ole – same ole.’
An effective way to get out of the rut and to generate ideas is to implement a technique I picked up from the inspirational book and video 212° – the Extra Degree.
Ask yourself and / or your team to complete this statement:
If I or a team member did/made just one extra ____________each ____________, the results would be __________________________.
The first blank represents Action.
The second blank represents Time Frame.
The third blank represents the Outcome.
A few examples;
If I took just one extra course each quarter, the results would be a master’s degree in 2 – years.
If I made just one extra customer call each hour, the results would be 10 per cent more sales.
If we made just one extra proposal each day, the results would be $100,000 more sales.
My leadership tip this week is to suggest you download the attached worksheet then at your next meeting go around the table a few times challenging your team to come up with a handful of implementable suggestions – you’ll be surprised with the results.
