TRIPLE III TIME: “Are You A Good FINISHER?”
This week’s TRIPLE III TIME message recommends that you put yourself in the “witness chair” and directly ask yourself a series of questions that all revolve around a major leadership issue: “Are You A Good FINISHER?”
- Do you finish a project completely before starting another?
- Do you have a habit of starting multiple projects/initiatives but only following through and completing the one or two that you like?
- As a leader do you assume the “starter” role and delegate FINISHER work to those that work with you?
- Do you work with others that have to wait for you to move forward so they can do their work…because you are not a good FINISHER?
There are many more questions that can be asked in relation to the basic: “Are You A Good FINISHER?” challenge…but this TRIPLE III TIME message will try hard to be focused.
I believe establishing and maintaining professional priorities centered on being a good FINISHER is critical to serving as a high-quality leader. In my old and new worlds-of-work…if I say I am going to do something…I am going to do it. This priority setting stance is then my driver to ensure I also retain an exemplary FINISHER position on the achievement/completion of promises I have made!
Good intentions often don’t come with good FINISHER results. Also being recognized as the King or Queen of great ideas…does not hold much leadership weight…if a good idea is never firmly initiated and operationally FINISHED.
This week take an extra solid look in the mirror and ask: “Are You A Good FINISHER?” Are you a positive (or not so positive) professional example in this area? Look around at others in your circle-of-colleagues…do you “stand-out” or “stand-behind” as a good FINISHER?
Be thorough and honest.
