TRIPLE III TIME: Assignment: Write A NEWSWEEK Article!
It has been difficult to avoid discussing the COVID pandemic and its huge impact on people, organizations, businesses and governments. TRIPLE III TIME messages are routinely committed to sharing progressive professional development thoughts and ideas for individuals and groups to ponder. However, in the most recent past I have observed a great deal of confusion and indecisiveness with regard to returning to work, truly being “open-for-business” and how to send the “right message” to customers and the public at large.
Well one of the consulting strategies I have used to get entities and individuals moving forward and envisioning their future is to give them an Assignment: Write A NEWSWEEK Article!
What do I mean? Exactly what the title of this blog message says: Assignment: Write A NEWSWEEK Article!
As we all move forward, we all need to share a vision of who we are and where we are going as an organization. Topics that a “special editor” will (at a minimum) want you to cover in YOUR NEWSWEEK article may be:
- Re-stating who and where you are
- The value you bring to your region
- Historical examples of how you have positively impacted people/your area
- What makes you/your organization special…everyday
- A select group of “I Bet You Didn’t Know” success facts about you and your business
It is critical that everyone take ownership in the future. I believe the Assignment: Write A NEWSWEEK Article facilitates and involves everyone to think about what do we want people to know about us…what we do/make that is special…and what our future means to everyone who reads the article.
(P.S. I have never been disappointed in the results of making this assignment!)
