How many times as leaders, have we had tasks or projects given to us – only to see the detail of the work prescribed to us? In most cases, the tasks may well be delivered late or does not meet the original objective. Does this sound familiar to you?
The best advice for you leaders out there, is to focus on the outcomes of the specific deliverables. For example, you may find that a project will deliver cost savings as a result of a successful project completion. Failure to meet these objectives, could result in a cutbacks in other areas, such as staffing. Learn to articulate the outcomes to your staff, and you will inevitably find a way to get your message across.
