How well does what your organization is designed to do…fit what you’re trying to do? Oh…you might already be pushing back. You might be saying, "We didn’t design anything" or "it was already like this when I came!" But every organization has a design. It just might not be a very good one. Or a very relevant one.
- What are you trying to do (what is your calling)?
- Who are you trying to reach?
- How can you best reach them?
Very basic. Very essential. If you’re in an organization that is ineffective, chances are it’s been a long time since anyone asked these questions.
