Techniques for FIT

  • Feeling stressed? Take a walk. Evidence continues to show that a walk in the park clears your brain. Leave the device at the desk.
  • Teach your people to pause before sending an email response. Have them double check they are responding to a single subject. If it's multiple points, get on the phone. 
  • Similarly, remind your team that speed isn't what they are there for. Their value is in their thinking. 
  • Show your team how to keep track of their time. Time, as opposed to money, is a non-renewable resource. 

Being Human - Stimulus

This morning I took my son to school and was struck by a speed check sign. A sign that I must drive by 20 times a week. 

I come over the crest of the hill, pick up speed and, most of the time, the sign blinks my current speed and I slow down. It makes me mindful of my speed as I approach the grade school. I'll say it's a positive stimulus that encourages a good result from me. It encourages me to be a good citizen and avoid consequences. 

This weekend, I want you to consider some of the stimuli that your managers are putting into your workplace. Does they encourage positive results, or is it encouraging negative results? 

Here's what I've found with my work on fit - the same stimulus can provide wildly different outcomes. Like my street sign. While it may encourage me to slow down today, when I was 17, I am pretty sure I'd think "I wonder what happens if I go 15-20 m.p.h. over?" Not the outcome the sign makers were hoping for. 

Good stuff. 

Random Stuff

What was I thinking?

Last week I had a workshop in L.A. and thinking that I'd avoid some last minute stress, I packed over the weekend. Everything I needed was clean. Everything I wanted was ready to roll at 4:30a.m. when I left for the airport. 

Except those shoes. Not only did I pack mismatched colors, I packed the same foot. And I didn't notice until an hour before showtime. Nice. 

So I was stuck with California casual, the right fit for that trip.
