How To Focus That Drives High Performance

LinkedIn CEO, Jeff Weiner, has a clear set of principles he operates from which he considers to be the most powerful mechanism for leadership.

He uses the acronym FCS (a.k.a FOCUS) to support himself and his leaders to remember and embody the following set of principles that drive high performance.

  1. Fewer things done better.
  2. Communicating the right information to the right people at the right time.
  3. Speed and quality of decision-making.

This is what it means to lead through doing less and achieving more. In this day and age of information overload, leadership must find ways to come back into balance and get things executed with least effort.

A high-performance culture is one that operates with high performing principles. There is no effort or energy put into making a decision. The decision is made quickly and effortlessly by the principle embodied within.

What are some principles that would support high performance for yourself and your people? Write them down and the reasons why these should be operating in your life or career. Then… execute!

“Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral, loose, and free-floating – these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
