One Big Idea
By John Dickerson January 4, 2022
Simple, Inspriational, Repeated - Focus on One Big Idea This Year and Gain Clarity for your entire Workforce
ONE BIG IDEA
One big idea – simple, inspirational, and repeated – can change your world; One idea that everyone from the very top of your organization to the people you serve all understand. Today, it is that one big idea that is often sorely missed in our cluttered world of communication, social media, and organizational challenges. Quickly ask yourself, how many top prioirties do you have for 2022? If you can list more than one, you’re misusing the word priority.
Is your Workforce on the same page?
If you and your management team were asked to name the top priority in your strategic plan, how would it go? Don’t take time to look it up, just name the top priority off the top of your head… How many would get it right? Some would, but I’d guess not everyone. Even though your leadership team was instrumental in choosing this top priority they probably have to decipher what is goal #1 from a pool of ever-changing goals. This is not a criticism of anyone, but a look at the reality of how chaotic life has become for most. 2022 is the time to focus your workforce.
And if they struggle to remember it, how on earth can people on the frontlines remember – much less embrace – that goal? Again this is not a criticism, but a reality of our employees’ world and the pressures they face.
Stay Focused and Keep it Simple
People will respond to a simple idea that is inspirational and repeated in many ways from different voices. It is not hearing it once, but over and over in different ways. Include examples, success stories that relate to the ONE BIG IDEA, and feedback from everyone. Adults have to hear a message multiple times before they understand and embrace it. Repeated focus on ONE BIG IDEA works.
