It’s About Getting Things Done
Seth Godin has been catching my eye again by stealing our catch phrase – “It’s about Getting Things Done”
Stealing maybe an overstatement but he’s written about three ways of getting better performance from people, illustrated by a book about a basketball coach (it’s got the word ‘coach” in it, so I read it). As usual, Seth is speaking my language – you get better results from your people, not by hounding them or by pitting them against each other but by giving them a platform to succeed and excel. It’s a bit scary but, ultimately, rewarding. Not only that, it’s respectful and decent, too.
How do you manage your people?
There are four ways you can engage with me:
1. Subscribe to these emails and get them once a week in your inbox so you never miss a video from me.
2. Join the Trades Business Toolshed Facebook Group where you can watch these videos, ask me questions or talk to your peers.
3. Attend my next Tools Down workshop.
4. Book yourself a 10-minute chat with me. We’ll talk about whether coaching is right for you now and if it is, we’ll go further into the process before you have to make your mind up.
See you later.
