for good. Tell your managers to do the same.
Involve everyone. Align all your people against the endgame.
Invite their opinion regarding critical issues such as the
direction you should be headed, the changes you have to make,
and the resources you have to acquire.
strategic focus. Using the employee feedback, develop a
strategic plan. Stay laser-focused on the methods that will
drive your business unit towards its stated objectives.
