Ep. 4 – Pillars of Performance – Plan

In our newest episode of Pillar Talk, Chris talks through the elements necessary to build a strong Plan. As with most things in business and life, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to this critical Pillar. A key concept that Chris covers is the fact that there is no perfect Plan and waiting for it will certainly lead to failure.

It is important to have a very clear destination and then to create bite-sized steps that you can execute on each day in order to bring you closer to that destination. It is important for leaders to be rigid about the destination while being extremely flexible with the Plan in order to create autonomy with team members.

Chris will cover a few additional tools that you will be able to implement immediately in order to enhance your Plan. Including Andy Frisella’s concept of the Production Pivot – a concept that Andy has popularized to get you out of feeling stuck. When you want to rest or quit is the time you need to take action and be the most productive! The SWOT analysis is another key tool that will help you to identify your biggest areas of opportunity and risk to ensure your Plan is built to minimize risk and maximize opportunity. You need a solid Plan in order to achieve any level of success, episode 4 will get you started down the right path, enjoy!

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”
