Combating Chaos 1

Much of the chaos in our lives and in business starts from a lack of clarity and confidence. Defining the ultimate objective for the company is critical. Knowing where you going provides direction at every junction of the journey. With clear direction comes strategies and clarity of tactics. Confidence is a result of a clear vision, strategy and tactics with lead to achieving one’s goals and ultimate objective.

Lacking a clear vision for the future, a company will meander from direction to another, day after day. Employees are pushed and pulled in every direction expected to do things differently from one moment to the next. Leaders with creative and active thinking want to share ideas with everyone thinking they’ll promote creative thinking among the troops but what they create is chaos.

The solution is simple:

  • Focus daily on the ultimate objectives.
  • Create initiatives with attainable goals.
  • Provide clear direction with relevant expectations.
  • Ensure everyone knows their role and duties.
  • Work together to make the best use of all your resources.
  • Gain buy-in from everyone as much as possible.
  • Hold everyone accountable for individual performance.
  • Leadership must set the course on any journey and likewise in any company. Once the course is set, empower people to accomplish the tasks and achieve the goals along the way. With clear direction and clarity of tactics the chaos will evaporate and creates order and harmony.
  • Building a unified team that knows where they are going and how they plan to get there is essential for combatting chaos in the workplace.
