High Performance Leadership Part III: Winning Commitment to Your Objective

Part three of the High Performance leadership project involves enlisting the help of others, putting together and action team and getting into more detail by devising an action plan.

The first step is to enlist an action team.  This is done by identifying key helpers and people who might resist the project from among the list of stakeholders, people who have something to gain or lose from the project.

From amongst the key helpers, I formed the action team and met with them a few times.

The first meeting was to introduce the team to the vision, mission and core values of the project (outlined in Part II).

Once the team had bought into the vision of the project, we worked together to define the key results areas of the project.

As a reminder, the project is to increase attendance and participation at our club meetings.

We came up with five key results areas:

  1. LDP Requirements: Establish and track the requirements for member who join our club through our company’s Leadership Development Program.
  2. Mentoring: Revamp our club’s Mentoring Program.
  3. Orientations: Establish a team and procedures for making sure that all new members receive orientation into the club upon joining.
  4. The Successful Club Series: Ensure that presentations from the Successful Club Series are presented in the club often.
  5. Spirit Squad: Establish a Spirit Squad to encourage members who may be lacking in participation or attendance.

For each of the key results areas, we then established specific tasks to be accomplished and a timeline for those tasks making sure that each task meets the SMART criteria:






Each member of the action team were given their tasks and timeline and we will meet again at the end of the month to discuss status.
