By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We are searching for mindful decision-makers. Are you one?

Every day we are faced with choices. We experience three types of choices on a daily basis: primary, secondary, and fundamental.

  1. Primary choices decide the one thing we want most.
  2. Secondary choices define the daily actions that support our primary choices.
  3. Fundamental choices define our state of being, or our choice to find lifelong transformation.

How to FOCUS that Drives Top Performance

By | Timothy's Thought for Thursday | No Comments

 

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday: 

LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner has a clear set of principles he operates from which he considers as 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 this set of principles that drive high performance.

“Fewer things done better.”

“Communicating the right information to the right people at the right time.”

“Speed and quality of decision-making.”

Timothy Carroll - Focus Top Peformance

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 the 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 or your people? Write them down and the reasons why these should be operating in your life/career. Then… execute!

Insight: 

“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

Should Leaders Let Go & Trust or Control?

By | Timothy's Thought for Thursday | No Comments

 

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday: 

It’s 28-24 to the Patriots, 30 seconds left in the Super Bowl, the Seahawks have the ball at the 1 yard line, and a touchdown wins them the game. They have the best running back in the League who has run 101 yards that evening. The offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevell, calls the play, the ball is snapped, and the quarterback passes it low and hard into the in-zone … BOOM! Malcom Butler, from the Patriots, makes a spectacular interception winning them the Super Bowl.

What happened!? Why did the Seahawks choose to pass instead of running it in for a certain touchdown? The head coach decided the final play instead of Bevell. A fatal error under pressure, at a crunch moment, undermining Bevells’ position and judgement.

Don’t change what isn’t broken when it matters most.

Should Leaders Let Go and Trust or Control by Timothy Carroll

The Seahawks, defending Super Bowl Champions, had a winning formula which they changed at the last second. As Leaders, we need to trust the people we have, in the roles they are given, to make the right call at the right time. Undermining the staff by deciding for them is risky business, erodes their confidence and belief, and breaks the trust. The tendency is to want to control the outcome, but just like a 100 meter sprinter, you need to relax and let go to finish strong.

Insight: 

“As a leader your job is to do everything in your power to create the perfect conditions for success by benching your ego and inspiring your team to play the game the right way.” ~ Phil Jackson
