As a leader you are ultimately judged on the results that you deliver. Seems fair, right?
On the other hand how much clarity do you have on the outcomes you want to achieve? If you were to look at your current role on a scale of 1 to 100 (1 =little clarity, 100= total clarity), how clear are you on your outcomes?
So why does having clarity of outcomes matter, anyway? Well if you are vague about your outcomes, the chances are you communication of outcomes to your team will not be great. If this is the case, before you know it you are way off track in achieving what you set out to do.
So take time to clearly define what you are seeking to achieve. If you are finding it a struggle, go back to the drawing board and revisit your outcomes.
