One Page Dashboard

Create a dashboard to keep you focused and grounded. On a single piece of paper, write down a couple of sentences to answer these questions:

  1. What is your vision for your organization, expressed in a way that inspires you?
  2. How would you describe your organization’s mission in a way that gives you a real sense of purpose?
  3. What are your key values that also fit the values of your organization?
  4. What performance metrics must you hit to be seen as a top performer?
  5. What are the top 3 initiatives you must lead to hit those metrics?
  6. Who are to 5-10 key people in your career (e.g., boss, employees, colleagues, mentors), that make up the core of your power base?
  7. What is one thing you will do in coming months to be even better (e.g., assignments, training, coaching, self-study)?

Use the above as a living, breathing document that you review and update every month or so. Look at it whenever you feel like your work is getting out of control or chaotic.
