What is it?
A visual progress chart. The project-team uses post-it notes to write the tasks in succinct language. Then as the work goes from To-Do –> In Progress –> Complete they move the post-it notes as needed.

What is it?
Setting vague desirable goals in abstraction works until you have to figure out what to do to achieve the goals.
We get stuck in the one direction or angle or surface of how we are currently doing things. This stuckness can cause us to push harder on the same thing. When a different, maybe better, result develops from reversing where to seek or initiate action.
I’m giving this talk / workshop in Atlanta Georgia. The client is looking for some academic & pragmatic ways to gather a wide variety of ideas, then create ways to implement the ideas. They are trying to shift the default mode of problem solving away from people who are senior or tenured within the organization.
There are many ways to create goals statements. What I find most effective is QQTR.
We all have, a one time in our careers, had a manger who has less capable or as capable as us. While having a manager who has the same capability may sound nice, it creates tension.
A dependent system changes behavior to people who just want to be told what to do, so they can do it. If things go wrong – it is not their fault because they were just doing what they were told. If thing go well – it is not their fault because they were just doing what they were told.
How do you restore or improve trust on a team?
If the trust was lost then it must have been there at some point, even a little bit. The people on the team know what that trust looked like. Perhaps they just need to be reminded of what they did to create that trust in the 1st place.
Outcomes from the workshop:
Examining business processes to improve results.
Using the 7 Steps to High Performance Teams model to make sense of where your business currently is & who it is attracting. Using the model to determine small steps to move your business forward.
When an organization is developed & designed for learning. Mangers are “Big Enough”, people work to their full capacity within a system that is actually built upon innovation, autonomy, idea generation, learning teams, & continuous growth. A system that works to drive out fear – to attract trust, we can see rapid growth & financial gains.
