Once the “boulders” of strategic objectives are in place, it’s time to establish the “pebbles” of action steps. Eventually, the “sand” of everyday habits can be ingrained in everything you do as a team.

Key Points:

  • Start by identifying your strategic objectives, the things you need to do to complete your mission.
  • Then, write out the actions steps needed for each objective. These are measurable actions that can be assigned to a person and with a due date. 
  • Doing this will shape your culture because everyone on the team knows what their responsibilities are and when they need to be completed.
