What if everyone in the organization had a narrow, laser focus on the one or two things that have to happen to get you through hard times and emerge stronger? In fact, research shows that companies who are making it have “simple goals repeatedly revisited, together with clear targets and strong follow through, including the measurement of results.” – (IBM Study 2009)
Attend an overview on FranklinCovey’s The 4 Disciplines of Execution, the most powerful methodology available today for translating business strategy into laser-focused action. No matter how effective your current methods, applying these disciplines will take the performance of your organization to a new level. The 4 Disciplines of Execution are a simple, powerful method for helping organizations EXECUTE in the midst of a whirlwind of competing priorities.
If you think only your organization struggles to get things done, think again. In this webcast, you’ll learn the fundamental reasons execution breaks down and how common these conditions are in most organizations. We’ll share four breakthrough disciplines that will help you identify your wildly important goals, and the simple steps you can take every day to achieve them. We’ll show you how to leverage your leaders and managers to become execution experts and how to tap into and harness your people’s commitment and passions to achieve your highest goals and priorities.

At the Chief Learning Officer symposium last week, Joe Santana from Siemens USA proposed that a broad network is richer and more robust than a deep network. He said that a strong network for career growth, problem solving, and innovation isn’t made up entirely of people just like you. I thought it was interesting to consider so I thought through my layers of friends, colleagues, advisors, and contacts—and even looking through my Outlook and LinkedIn contacts—and then realized with a start that my network is deep but not broad.
