1. To stay or leave your current role. Don’t go back to work passively.
2. If you stay, to decide how your organisation’s strategy fits with your own personal career strategy.
3. To decide what, precisely, you want to achieve by the end of 2015.
4. To decide how you are going to create an atmosphere in which your best people will help achieve that outcome.
5. To decide who is ambivalent about you and your plans and how you are going to take responsibility for persuading them.
6. To decide who is against you and definitely not for turning and what you are going to do about them.
7. To decide and clear contract what behaviours you and your team could change by just a small factor of say 5%-15%; that is only five to fifteen actions or statements out every hundred. That’s small change. But the impact of a small change in behaviour by you and your direct reports can, in aggregate, be the difference between achieving your goals and not.
