When you are short of time, here is the one action that will give you 80 percent results in 20 percent of the time.
Support leaders when they’re making decisions.
BY DOING THIS
– Know what decisions they’re making and when.
– Ensure that leaders have accurate information on options.
– Try to attend these meetings or follow up afterward.
Most people have fewer resources to fulfill their change role than they need, and so must choose which activities are most important. Of all the tasks you need to perform, I suggest prioritizing spending time with leaders as they are making decisions. These moments will determine the success of your project and will define where your knowledge and experience are needed most.
Status meetings are crucial to the success of change initiatives because this is where leaders review progress, evaluate risks and make decisions, including on the allocation of resources. If you know what’s being decided at these meetings, you can influence what data is presented and what questions get asked. The better briefed leaders are, the better they will be at making the right decisions.
If you don’t have access to the leader, give the information to someone they rely on for guidance.
