Still working my way through Peter Drucker’s The Effective Executive.  It is PACKED full of great stuff.  Check this one out.  What if I asked these two questions of everyone I’m working with:

  • What contribution from me do you require to make your contribution to the organization?
  • When do you need this, how do you need it, and in what form?

Think outcomes might be different?

We’re working on org charts and employee evaluations right now, developing a more strategic structure that will enable sustained growth.  Wouldn’t it make sense for me to add these two questions to the initial reviews and incorporate their answers into my own next steps?  I think it would.  What do you think?
