Do you know what your language of results is? I was invited to play on a kickball team, and I am glad I did. The thrill of game competition unearthed the feelings of winning and losing not felt since High School. Winning is still a much better feeling than losing which generated this thought, is that the reason organizations are not successful in talking about results because of the feeling of losing?
The discussion of results is easy when winning, but giving feedback or receiving it when losing is not pleasant. In an era where self-esteem is prized, the marketplace renders its judgment without sentiment. An organization is either winning or losing.
At Strabo, we think the best way to review results is through a disciplined process. It keeps focusing on strategic goals with a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly routine of an organization. Our Strategic Review Regimen blends data from the performance of actions, behaviors, and timelines against expectations, the performance of the strategy along with an analysis of competitors and business environment. The goal is to make conversations about the collective goals outside of individual behaviors which will drive superior performance. So, find your instinctual and unique language of results so you know how to play to win!
