The Path to Becoming Highly Effective – 20 Ways to Create a Culture Shift at Your Company

It’s all about opening your mind to a new way of thinking so you can intuitively think through any challenge or problem you face. Strategic thinking encourages creative thought and proactive communicative, creating an environment from which change, improvement, and evolution are encouraged and developed. When Strategic Thinking is used to its full potential, it can become a transformative process which holds the potential for creative change and process improvement.  (Culture Shift)

1. At the end of every day and week, look at your ONE Master List and reflect on ways you could improve your results tomorrow or next week. (Culture Shift)

2. Developing a “customized” Master List, will generate the effectiveness needed to accomplish the volume of work now required in today’s global business environment. (Either no list or too many lists will create an inefficient plan that will reduce your potential results daily and weekly. (Culture Shift)

3. Even though the workload has tripled, we still come to work with the same plan we used three years ago when the work was significantly less. Planning needs to become more realistic, based on past experience, with room for change, immediate requests, and for things to go wrong. (Culture Shift)

4. Strategic thinking involves developing your creativity, problem-solving, flexibility, and critical thinking, as well as fostering and encouraging teamwork. (Culture Shift)

5. Question the way things have always been done. Question your “typical” routine and habits. Evaluate your routine; maybe it’s time for a new routine. (Culture Shift)

6. Slow down and ask better questions, listen better, pause, evaluate, then decide. Going fast often produces mistakes, vague communication, and poorly thought out decisions. (Culture Shift)

7. Seek to become more proactive and less reactive. Immediacy is the single most counter-productive thing you experience each day. (Culture Shift)

8. Question all the meetings you’re scheduling and accepting. Why did you schedule a meeting with no agenda? Why did you accept a meeting invite without an agenda? (Culture Shift)

9. Suggest a “Group Power Hour” for your team, when everyone agrees not to interrupt each other for an hour – Team Productivity Improvement (Culture Shift)

10. At the end of the day, do you have a good reason for everything you checked off (or completed) and everything you didn’t? (Culture Shift)

11. The new way to measure productivity is not how many check marks you got in a day but rather what you check off. (Culture Shift)

12. Start your day with the most important task on your list. Block your calendar, quickly scan email, and don’t “relationship build” until you get something important done. This is the “Veggie Principle.” (Culture Shift)

13. Use the purpose of the meeting to determine when to schedule it; decision-making, brain-storming, or status? (Culture Shift)

14. Use your energy cycles to your advantage. Work on difficult tasks when you are best and easier tasks when your energy is low. (Culture Shift)

15. Always evaluate each interruption. Ask yourself, “Is this truly something I must handle right away?” Ask questions, listen, then decide if you need to handle it right away. (Culture Shift)

16. 90% of all productivity gains occur between 7 AM and 1 pm. Accomplish more of what matters most in the morning and move non-decision making meetings to the afternoon. (Culture Shift)

17. Give everyone deadlines and the reason for your deadline and ask others to do the same for you. That way it will be easier for both of you to prioritize.(No ASAP) (Culture Shift)

18. Begin to “Batch” similar tasks on your list instead of jumping from task to task like a “heart patient.) Batching is the 2nd fastest way to improve your productivity. (Culture Shift)

19. Be prepared to constantly be changing your priorities throughout the day as your day is changing. Everything you complete a task, reassess your list and see if any priorities have changed. (Culture Shift)

20. Cut down your meetings to 20 and 50 minutes. You can change the default in Outlook. You’ll find you get just as much done in less time and will have time to get to your next meeting on-time. (Culture Shift)

Pick three and try them for a week. Then let me know what the results were! Remember, nothing improves if you’re not willing to take ACTION!
