Summary of 11 points, jeff noel style.
- You’re too Monotonous. Doing the same things and expecting your results to happen better and faster.
- You’re doing workplace initiatives you hate.
- You are starting with the wrong mindset.
- You’re always focused on the same things, in the same way.
- You refuse to do what it takes to have focus and discipline.
- You are neglecting a holistic approach to organizational vibrancy.
- You use a ready, fire, aim approach to making progress.
- You rush from one thing to another and don’t fully understand the inter-connectedness of the easy beginnings and easy endings.
- You only want to focus on what you’re good at, and not a 360 analysis.
- Rush, rush, rush. You do too many things that others can, and should, be doing.
- The long way is the short cut. Each important piece of cultural architecture has a positive ripple effect when you have it in place and a negative ripple effect when it isn’t.
