Go From Idea to Execution

If your team generates ideas but falls short on the execution, one of these may be the reason why:

  • Employees lack commitment. People can say they’re onboard but not commit to an idea. Encourage early dissent by asking “What’s wrong with the plan?” Address any concerns.
  • People have hidden agendas. Because they worry about how changes or plans will affect them, they delay getting started or sabotage plans. Talk to employees about competing commitments and prioritize assignments.
  • You haven’t offered clear direction. Ask employees to articulate their next steps and deadlines.
