Dos & Don’ts: Momentum
Your job as CEO here is to select the one thing that the company can do now that will have the biggest impact on inertia and do that first. Personally sponsor the initiative if it will deliver some of the highest value in your sequence. Power it up with a FAST team. Hold the senior executive leading it accountable for getting it done well and quickly. When it’s finished, personally acknowledge them and celebrate the win widely to create a ripple effect in the company. Move on to your next initiative.
