What's the Program?
If you are leading a company, a team, a family or your life - a major part of your job needs to be determining what the program is going to be and what "Act" will be coming up next. Sometimes we get so caught up in performing or the performance that we forget that we are also the "Ringmaster" who needs to determine the overall program. Too often, we find ourselves running around, listening to who is "squeaking" the loudest and being reactive.
Set the agenda, get your team on board with the program and clear the path for execution. If you are not doing this, you might need to ask yourself "who" or "what" is determining the acts of your circus.
