Here is a recent post from Jane Miller, founder of Jane Knows and natural foods CEO extraordinaire (Cookie Chips, Rudy’s Organic Bakery, others). Every time I get together with Jane I always (a) laugh a lot, and (b) walk away with a new perspective on something. She’s a brilliant leader. Take 2 minutes to click through to the full article as posted on her site. It’s worth it.
I have been in a new job for about nine months and I don’t think I am doing a very good job.
No one has told me that (yet).
They don’t have to because I have my own personal scorecard.
I developed this concept to keep track of what is important to me and how I am doing relative to what is important to me.
Because at the end of the day, if I am meeting my own personal standards, I will exceed the standards of my employer.
