Return On Hard Decisions1


I spent much of yesterday going through board decks and other year-end reports. It was an incredibly gratifying experience after a hard year. I spearheaded quite a few restructurings this year. A lot of people lost their jobs as a result of those efforts. It was a year of hard decisions and hard conversations. But as I sat in my office and read through the reports and decks, what came across loud and clear was that we had made a bunch of right decisions. A lot of companies that were wandering in the wilderness are now headed in clear and exciting directions. I continue to feel badly for the people who lost their jobs or quit their jobs in the wake of these restructurings. I realize that many of them had a hard year too and I am sorry for that. But I feel great for the companies who have been revitalized and for the people who are working in them with a jump in their step and a feeling of optimism and purpose. This time last year I had a bad feeling in my gut and was having trouble sleeping. I knew what I had to do and dreaded doing it. Right now, I have a good feeling in my gut and am sleeping like a baby. That is a nice return on hard decisions. http://avc.com/2017/12/return-on-hard-decisions/

Pick up the phone


If an email exchange exceeds 4 back-and-forth emails with limited progress on what you’re trying to communicate – stop. Pick up the phone. If you are going back and forth on whatever chat tool you use for longer than a minute – stop. Pick up the phone. If your text message spree isn’t solving the problem – stop. Pick up the phone. If you are attempting to text while driving – definitely stop. Pick up the phone. Or, if these folks live with you or work close to you, go meet them in person. Asynchronous communication has a time and place. Best to use it when it is effective. Share this: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Like this: Like Loading...
