How Great Teams Prioritize Goals

Prioritize goals can be very challenging.

Years ago our property management company left a lot to be desired when it came to our ability to prioritize projects and goals. We didn’t have an agenda for our strategic planning meetings. Embarrassingly sometimes our executive team would write our priorities down, and then lose the paper we wrote them on. We would talk about to-dos and not follow up. This lack of structure kept us amateur, and we struggled to move our business and goals forward.

There came a point where we felt like we were on a hamster wheel and living in the movie Groundhog Day.
Was this all there was to our business? Was this as far as we were going to get as professionals? Was more even possible for people like us?

Then I read the book Traction by Gino Wickman and it changed everything. We realized that If we just followed the guidelines in the book we would become the mature adults we needed to be to run a company, and from that our business could reach its full potential.

We went from floundering to focused and goal-oriented. When we saw ourselves holding useful meetings and moving our goals forward, it gave us more confidence in ourselves. It opened our minds to more permutations of possibilities.




I recommend reading the book in its entirety, however, today is the first day of Q2 and in the interest of time and momentum I will outline a few key points that helped us reach and prioritize our quarterly goals consistently.

Q2 2020 is upon us.

What are you going to prioritize? How are you going to transform your business? If we keep our eye on our priorities we can move forward even when the world is in a chaotic moment. If we stay focused when others are distracted we can win the game. Having clear goals and effective meetings can be the difference between success and failure.
