I’m a huge fan of Patrick Lencioni. When I grow up, I wanna be like him.
In this short video, he offers some advice on the questions that need constant clarity within the corporation and departments. These questions are for every manager to ask and answer for their teams. They offer clarity…and motivation with purpose. I call them perennial questions because they’re long lasting and require constant attention.
My son’s have constantly asked “why” questions. Sometimes it annoys me, but they buy into whatever we’re doing at home when we take the time to answer the “W” questions.
A company should be no different. People want motivation and purpose to show up to work. We’re all kids in the sandbox that want to play. It helps to know what we’re playing and whose “it”.
