A Call To Action For A Rapid Rebuild In 2021 – The 100 Day Plan

By February 5, 2021 No Comments


There is a lot of uncertainty that comes with a new job, a new responsibility, and a new year post Covid. You will encounter new people, a new environment, a new set of responsibilities and, sadly, people who you know but have experienced difficulties from personal experiences from Covid.

Success during week one and the coming weeks and months is about balance: you want to make a great first impression, with the understanding you will not get everything right. My Balanced Leadership Approach will set you up for success, in your first 100 days and beyond – regardless if it is a new job, new responsibility or the Rapid Rebuild of your business or career.

After the excitement and realization of a new job opportunity or the anxiety of the restart, you will settle into your role. The goal in this first 30 days and the next 70 days of your first 100 days is to learn how you can apply your skill set to the challenges and opportunities facing this organization in an organized and balanced way.

Your goals are to:

  • Get to know your team and people.
  • Organize yourself and your people and set good habits, starting with yours
  • Define success.
  • Identify some early wins to create a climate of success!

Balanced Leadership

The key component for the first 100 days and beyond is Balanced Leadership. The three key constituents that are represented in the Balanced Leadership Model must be in consideration and prominent in all we do in the first 100 days. They will be the same constituents going forward in your Balanced Leadership approach. They are our Customers, Our People, and our Shareowners and or Stakeholders. In all we do as an organization and as the leader, our actions must take these three into consideration.

This is why understanding and committing to the Balanced Leadership approach is so important. Your consistency and dedication to the approach will be watched, seen, and evaluated, and your people will decide, based on your example, what they believe, what you believe and what is important going forward. You are modeling what good leadership looks like in the first 100 days as you gain results and steer the organization.

In all of our decisions we must have balance. We must:

Think Like A Customer

Feel Like A Valuable Employee and

Act Like An Owner.

As you craft your first 100 days, do it with this in mind. You will want to reinforce through any future communication and visits, whether virtual or in person, that you believe what will differentiate your organization from your competitors is your people! Their ability and desire to be differentiate you from your competitors, and is a strategic advantage! If they do not believe, understand, or embrace the Balanced Leadership concept at this point ,they will over the course of the coming weeks, months, and years. It will start in the first 100 days.

Why Book Clubs Will Benefit Your Organization
(especially in these virtual times)

Book clubs at work are a serious employee development opportunity. A book club provides benefits for the employee—and for the employer when it is implemented with care. In a book club, your employees learn new concepts and new ways of doing activities that they can apply in their workplace. Developing a consistent set of book club discussion questions enables employees to apply the concepts on the job.

  • It builds camaraderie, comfort, and teamwork in the group of employees who attend. It is a team-building activity that works as well as the ones in the traditional settings and can flourish during virtual times.
  • When employees learn the same concepts, by reading the same book, they share the same language and they hear the same ideas. It makes the application and adoption of the ideas and concepts more easily and seamlessly into the workplace.
  • The book club gives employees the opportunity to step up and practice leadership roles such as leading a group discussion or presenting to provide an overview of a chapter.
  • You can help your organization become a learning organization in which people continuously grow and develop.

Select Tighten The Lug Nuts as your first book and I will offer my time to participate in your book club free of charge as a thank you for your purchase at www.tightenthelugnuts.com, to demonstrate my commitment to training and development.
