Direction and Momentum
Our adventures in business require both Direction and Momentum to be truly nourishing.
Direction is a strong understanding of where we are going – a relentless pursuit of SMART and ethical goals.
Momentum is the effort that people put in – it is a sign of voluntary hard work by a team who want to get things done because they can see a future for themselves in the Direction we are headed.
Things go right when both are in evidence.
High Momentum + High Direction
Outstanding Business Performance, Brilliant Teams, Great Systems and Amazing Customer Reviews.
Things go wrong when one or both are missing.
High Direction + Low Momentum
Micro-management, Death by WhatsApp, endless email threads, FOMM (fear of making a mistake), Stupid Systems and Burn Out.
High Momentum + Low Direction
The hamster wheel – same stuff, different day. No sense of purpose or progress. Doing it, doing it, doing it.
Low Direction + Low Momentum
Disillusion, High Staff Turnover, Stagnation and Closure
