Last week we had Ken Wilbanks here. He made a big impact on who we are. As he says, his job is to move us about 1-5% in trajectory.
Doesn’t seem like much, but trajectory is parabolic over time.
Over time, a 1% change in the way we do things will set us off on a great path.
Here’s one easy takeaway we can implement right away:
Some of us might be spending up to 15 hours A WEEK on internal (Drexel to Drexel) e-mails. That is like two full days of staff meetings!
Let’s challenge ourselves to clean up the internal emails and be more efficient if possible. Think about how often, and when you send them, and if they are needed, could they be done less, or could be better done on the phone or face to face?
This is not about “less communication” but BETTER, 1% BETTER COMMUNICATION.
CHANGE OUR TRAJECTORY
WE CHALLENGE YOU THIS FRIDAY
Please remind everyone at the weekly pep rallies.
LET’S DO ZERO INTERNAL E-MAILS THIS FRIDAY.
Anyone sending one Friday will be fined heavily!
(Yes, I do realize the irony of informing you of this via my blog on an e-mail.)
