Preparing for the Challenges of 2008
This morning I will be meeting with my team to discuss our goals and objectives for the next year. For most of them, the things that we will be discussing will be very concerning. Most of them have been doing the same jobs for a long time. However, the organization's leadership has recognized that the new business world (The E-World) will require us to transform ourselves. Therefore, I will be challenging them with 2 things - 1) Change and develop a new set of skills and 2) To take a fresh look at what they do and ask themselves why they do it and can it be done differently. I will keep you posted about how it goes and whether they embrace the challenge or run from it.
