Leaders have a lot of responsibility-no doubt about it-yet some of the most important actions they can take can be boiled down to a few key actions that can have immeasurable impact.  As we turn into final stretch of planning for 2013, what are the most important things a leader can do within the organization? Here’s my list. What’s yours?

  • Frame the issues that must be address by the leadership team
  • Get the right people in the room for the discussion
  • Ask provocative questions to stimulate a wide-ranging give-and-take
  • Get out of the way and let the team create solutions, options, plans
