Today my thought is simple. Keep score!
Too many people work in the dark. They don’t know if their team is doing a good job or not. They don’t know if their team is winning. And this can lead to unproductive stress and anxiety, and even apathy and lethargy.
The best leaders I know and the organizations with the strongest cultures don’t allow for ambiguity around results including progress towards them. Rather, they provide clear collective goals and then track them consistently. Doing this helps everyone stay aligned and focused on what matters most. It helps improve results.
So if you want to better engage your team, then keep score!
