As Al Pacino’s character said in Any Given Sunday, “In either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small. I mean one-half step too late or too early you do not quite make it. One-half second too slow or too fast and you do not quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in every break of the game, every minute, every second.”
The game changing moment has come. Hopefully, the worst of the pandemic is past us. Now it is necessary that we exchange the stress, fear, and trepidation of the past for determination,
energy and leadership skills and move forward. Those precious inches and seconds we will need to win require a laser-sharp focus. We need to be proactive and creative in our Rapid Rebuild
strategy. We can develop powerful leadership skills that will allow us to emerge much stronger, leaner, faster and even more competitive than we were before.
We can help you do that.

Topics For Discussion In Virtual Meetings
We have been discussing the importance of the 23 Leadership Competencies. Any or all of them will be appropriate for virtual meetings, talks or presentations.
In the last few newsletters we presented a number of these concepts (if you missed them, they are available on our website at 3sixtymanagementservices.com). As we turn our attention to the
way forward, I would like key in on 5 more Leadership Competencies.
For more in-depth information and treatment of these topics you can visit our podcast page.
The Principles Of Balanced Leadership:
As you and your company evolve into a performance-driven organization it will be connected by the principles of Balanced Leadership. This is where you:
– Think like a customer by approaching each challenge as a true solutions provider.
– Feel like a valued individual by knowing your work matters and you are part of the solution not part of the problem, and you will never compromise on safety.
– Act like an owner by understanding the business and your role in what leads to success.
– Process ties it all together and allows us the ability to replicate the results over time and new people.
Tighten The Lug Nuts, Ultimate Leadership Book For Everyone:
Leadership is something we all have concerns about. Leadership is a concept that is not reserved for or only applies to certain people in business, government, and civic organizations.
The reality is that no matter our age, gender, occupation, educational level, or position in life, each of us touches and influences other lives. Through this extension, we are all leaders to
someone at some time. It can be a person under our supervision or care, a spouse we honor and live with, or a child we nurture, a student we teach, or a player we coach. It could be as
simple as a fellow member of our church or religious affiliation, club, league, or association, but it is usually identified by the fact we have made a positive difference through our actions and
examples. Leaders must develop emotional intelligence along with their educational intelligence and business acumen.
Build Strong Relationships:
Providing value and listening are key components of any relationship. The foundation of strong relationships also includes being fair to customers and people in your care. Integrity of your word
is a critical component of strong relationships and by following through on your word you preserve your integrity of your word. Make sure to ask for assistance from others when necessary to ensure proper follow through and response. Treat every customer, and every person you come in contact with, how you would like to be treated.
Inspiring and Motivating Others:
Positively affects the behavior of others, motivating them to achieve personal satisfaction and high performance through a sense of purpose and spirit of cooperation. Leads by example,
motivating and inspiring others to contribute opinions and suggestions. Demonstrating a personal commitment to group goals.
Each of the goals you establish should be tested against the SMART criteria.
– Be Specific:
Webster’s defines it as: clearly and exactly presented or stated. Precise or exact; relating to a
particular person, situation, etc.
– Be Measurable:
To hold employees accountable, you need to be able to measure what they are doing in a way that can be tracked numerically. Usually, if you are specific in your definition of goals, they will be
Sometimes, however, you will find goals that use specific terms, but leave the measurement process in doubt.
– Be Attainable:
Goals must be designed so it is possible for people to achieve them. They must be neither so easy that they require no significant effort, nor so difficult that only a superhuman could
The employee must have control over his or her performance. Goals are unfair if they specify accomplishments over which the employee being evaluated has little or no control.
– Be Relevant:
Goals must support the overall direction.
– Be Time-based:
Have a start and finish date.
