How focused is your team at the moment — in the chaotic schedule you are all living in today?
When life comes at our teams a mile a minute and we are experiencing tremendous planning chaos — it seems almost impossible to stop and sort out a team’s direction. A strategic plan is simply “a written statement of the group’s assumptions about its Direction, its organization, and its cash.” The Annual Team-Focus Arrow is a simple tool that allows you to define the very basic direction your team is heading this year, in an hour or two. This clear direction helps your team make the same assumptions about the coming year, which dramatically reduces the amount of frustration, pressure, and tension your team experiences with each other on a day to day basis. And the arrow works fast!
