The chances are that you’ve heard that comment before, and it may have made you quite upset. After all, you set goals for a reason, so how can it be that the team didn’t have time for them?

In the past 25 years, I’ve worked with teams in various ways to achieve their goals. Breaking down yearly goals into quarterly goals and then further into weekly goals.
I’ve found that there’s sometimes a thin line between achieving or not achieving those set goals. This thin line has to do with team spirit and the composition of the team, but perhaps even more crucially: the management and guidance of this team within the organization, especially when it often consists of members from different parts of the organization.
With the core values in hand and the right priorities set by management, it’s definitely possible to achieve many of the stated objectives.
I’ve adapted the Rockefeller Habits method in various ways to ensure that the team does achieve the goals. Rest assured, it has gone completely wrong on occasion, but I’ve learned from those experiences!

Not following agreements within a team is detrimental to the end result. But when someone does that regularly in their regular work and isn’t held accountable, how do you change that?
An external person, unencumbered by ingrained habits or even ‘rights’ (such as the right not to fulfill their agreements), can make the difference between achieving or not achieving the company’s objectives!
Let me be that external voice that helps you realize your goals!
