You´re solving a problem with the method of Decision-Making. With your team, you set several alternatives in detail to choose, one in the end. One result shall be to increase the profit next year. It´s part of the decision process.
Now you´re challenged to show this goal as a picture to the team and to the rest of the crew. The abtract is, to reach a gain of 5 %. That´s just an abstract information.
5 % doesn´t really create a vivid picture to get your team´s bodies of their chairs or their mind running in the right direction to make it happen.
To solve this challenge, you think about setting and producing a factual picture which shows WHAT those 5 % will change w/in your company. You plan to give MORE information than just a cold, written number.
If this is the situation WHERE you are right now, you may check-out this video-clip about factual picture composition which I filmed directly for you this past week: PIC Composition
Imagine you have a clear plan what to do with the 5 % profit increase. Now think about HOW to show this new picture to your team. Do you plan to invest the profit?
Or a part of the profit?
What´s the investment about? Does it positively affect your team on a daily basis? Is the investment what you like to show? Is that the goal which pulls them off their chairs for more motivated action, with a great mood? Is THAT picture maybe THE thing which makes it possible to reach the profit of 5 %?
Goal setting is relevant. A picture says more than 1,000 words. You´re not a motivator. You´re into business to keep it up and running and to secure on-going projects for your team.
Is the abstract of 5 % a great message for the team as a goal?
Or is a picture of how those 5 % profit will change their daily basis a greater message to the team? Still, it´s about solving a problem with a decision.
Now, you´re into another decision…..
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
