You need well executed projects to accomplish your goals. Clearly define and delegate.
- Define the elements of the project and assign responsibility to those
best able to manage and execute those elements.
- Once assigning a task to someone – let them handle it. They should be accountable to you, but you
should not rush in to micro-manage or to give others pieces of the project.
- Respect the chain of command you have established.
- Allow project leaders to pick your own team (committee) and manage them
- Clarify team (committee) goals and deadlines – hold people accountable.
- Always give positive recognition.
Your time and everyone else’s is of incredible value. Invest it wisely.
- Set and keep a time schedule.
- As meeting manager (CEO or facilitator) be on time.
- Have an agenda – and publish it – also have paper copies.
- No surprises – everyone involved should know the purpose of the meeting.
- If guests are invited, advise them in advance that they are guests and
will be given the opportunity to speak when it is appropriate to the reason
they are in attendance.
- Nurture a climate that encourages people to express their own views –
and to offer constructive disagreements and/or criticism.
- Share the responsibility of the meeting with attendees by having them
responsible for different aspects of the agenda.
- Have a living agenda rather than a static one and allow others to input
into the agenda before it is published.
- Start and end on time – that shows respect for others
