Two Minute Drill: Rethink, Rebuild, Restart
What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill.Today’s topic of conversation is Rethink, Rebuild, Restart. I remember listening to this book many years ago, Jack: Straight from the Gut. It was Jack Welch’s book, and I remember him talking about the fact that great companies go through change, disruption, and upheaval about every five years.
The Rethinking Pathway
That change is necessary because one thing that’s constant is change. Change happens in the environment around us and therefore great companies must adapt.
Over the last several weeks, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from my direct reports. It only takes one conversation, and one comment to start you going down the rethinking pathway.
When you have those conversations and when you’re getting feedback, real honest, open feedback, you can then think about how you rebuild what you’re doing, and how you can make it even better than where you are today.
I will tell you, don’t take for granted that your people are being open, like fully open with you 100% of the time. In a leadership role, many times, even though you’ve built great trust and great relationships, your team may not feel fully comfortable expressing how they truly feel.
When you start to get that feedback dig deeper and get as much information as you can so that you can then restart what you’re doing and create an even better environment for your people and a better company for your customers and your strategic partners.
So that’s today’s Two Minute Drill Rethink, Rebuild, Restart.
Make sure you’re getting really open and honest feedback from your team so you can do those three things and move forward with your personal and your company’s mission.
Have a great week you all!
For those who are at FCA this weekend, I can’t wait to catch you all there. We’ll have an amazing weekend!
