How to Create a Culture of Discipline – Lesson 2

2. Create a clear vision and game plan for each person and how they’ll advance

We can hope, wish, and assume that people are motivated by helping others…but generally they are not.

People primarily are concerned with their own self-interest. Which as a leader is a good thing because as long as you can get out side of your own self-interest and think “what are my people most interested in” you will have a good guiding light towards success.

But if you want to create a culture of discipline then the work you need to do is to make sure that every single person (yes every single one – every one that is important anyways) has a clear, distinct, detailed plan for how their own self-interest and self-actualization will be achieved by serving your organization.

Is our company a sparkling example of this???

Nope. I wouldn’t say so.

Although I’m embarrassed to admit it, unfortunately this is a weakness of ours that we are working on but it is something that we see in successful clients.

Everyone is in business for themselves; even if they are an employee. Create a detailed plan for how they can achieve their own life goals by working for your company and you will create a culture of discipline.

Fail to do so, and you’ll have a team of people who arrive late, leave early, and do the least amount of work possible without getting fired in between.

If you want to get the most out of them you have to follow the advice of the great philosopher, Cuba Gooding Jr and “show me (them) the money!”

Different Than You Think

You know what you should do…

But you do not do it.

That’s the mark of a fool.

Today’s April 1st…

If you’re not doing what you know you should do then that means today is your day: April Fools’ Day.

Rather than letting today be the day of the fool let it be the day that you overcome the life of fools. Today is the day you take action. Today is the day you start doing what you know you should do. Today is not April’s fools day for you.
