Create Your Best Year Ever!

January 6, 2013 -- Sal Silvester

In Matthew Kelly's book The Rhythm of Life, he says...
 
"Everything is a Choice. This is life's greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. Not power over others, but the often untapped power to be ourselves and to live the life we have imagined."
 
Kelly goes on to say that it's a hard lesson because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now.
 

Agile Performance Goals

April 11, 2012 -- Sal Silvester

The performance management process in many organizations is irrelevant. Create 12-month/annual goals and then ignore the goals throughout the year.

How about a more agile process instead?

1. Create quarterly or more frequent goals that are aligned with organizational goals.

2. Make the review process more frequent - e.g., quarterly.

3. Update goals throughout the year so that they are in line with the latest organizational and market changes.
