Dear Friends, earlier I had written about Alignment as an essential part of Leadership and how doHow® helps you achieve the same effortlessly.
This Week I talk about importance of rituals / routines and how doHow® helps you achieve this important facet of Leadership.
Once you have set the direction vision & motivated the team through alignment next important step is to have
2) Review & Monitor progress
Let’s us see how doHow® helps in both these leadership attributes ….
- Action/Implementation plan is generally imagined as a ritual / routine where one needs to sit down and list out all the points till the mind/time gets exhausted. In doHow® methodology it is as simple as playing the Effective Implementation Game. By playing the implementation game you are able to chart out what actions that you need to take in order to achieve the amazing outcome in a playful and non confronting manner. During this game you help the player define/refine their amazing outcomes (mid term goals), define routines, KPI’s, immediately actionable measures. In one of the one day Workshops for a multinational company by end of the day team came out with revised annual operating plan to increase there market share from existing 50% to 65% of total market effortlessly by tying down the actions generated from the ideation game.
- Review & Monitor progress is another ritual / routine which lacks energy & sometime focus. With doHow® it is rigour with all important matters being covered without loosing out on fun part of doHow® . Here there are 2 ways it can be fun, one is to play the Recap for Transformation game & second is to do the doHow ® practices
During the Recap for Transformation Game in a playful manner you coach other players in a non judgemental way, define the implementation progress & discuss accomplishments, identify key challenges, favourable and adverse changes in your insights, actual status of your key KPI’s, While you are doing serious stuff you are also narrating an incidence, a story, doing an energizer adding fun routine to a serious topic of review thereby allowing people to give their best without fear, developing & fostering team spirit another important attribute of Leadership.
In case if you need to do assessment, functional excellence, evolution, reporting, stakeholders view or leadership reviews then you can choose from various practices that are available or can develop a special one for you to meet your specific needs. By following these practices you have access to various dedicated checklists for those specific subjects to move from an ignorant level o master level. These practice tool helps you to have structured discussions with your employees stake holders so that irrespective of who is reviewing you do not miss out any important points. Practises have self and coach rating which can get emailed to all automatically. There are practices for daily review too where you can attach the photo evidence or a word / Excel documents which gets sent to all concerned automatically through mail.
Unique thing about doHow® is that you can access them through your mobile too. Making it easy to access from anywhere and syncs with generation Y seamlessly.
Another leadership attributes such as of connecting with people, personal effectiveness, Self leadership all done effortlessly.
This is beauty of using doHow® any time anywhere from the comfort of palm to a computer in boardroom talking everything in same stride and by putting people at ease for their maximum contribution.
That is all for this week. Next week I introduce you to another vertical of doHow® called Bistro
