- When essentialism is practiced, businesses thrive. Without essentialism, business leaders pursue an unnecessarily broad agenda, supported by strained resources, that is missing a galvanizing message or a shared sense of priority.
- As the scope of initiatives expands, execution risk expands as well; there is a direct correlation. This scope creep dooms many companies as the pace, substance, and sustainability of initiatives falls far short of what is required to drive targeted employee and client engagement. Too many messages and unclear messaging challenge employee engagement. You will accomplish nothing without high levels of employee engagement.
Hallmarks of Essentialism
PRIORITY: Sort through the myriad of legacy priorities and discover the one priority of the business.
SIMPLICITY: Communicate and clarify the one goal for employees with impactful and concise language.
CONSISTENCY: The leadership team must be consistent in engaging the priority and sustaining the priority.
ENGAGEMENT: All of this will create a sense of empowerment for your employees and deliver critically high levels of employee engagement.
