Two Ways To Make Your Meetings SMART as Hell

Two Ways To Make Your Meetings SMART as Hell

Sitting through status meetings is boring, right? Well then, why do many of us go home and watch status reports for an hour or more every night? We watch news shows, ‘fake’ news shows, Entertainment Tonight, TMZ, ESPN’s SportsCenter, and many more. Something about those status reports must be working

You can never have too many tools…

This past month has been a great one for me, when you measure it by the number of tools I’ve added to my kit. Just under a month ago, I attended a Gamestorming workshop, where I picked up a bunch of cool new facilitation techniques from Dave Gray and Sunni

A Recommendation for SMART as Hell

A Recommendation for SMART as Hell

I really enjoy sharing the concepts behind SMART as Hell. Audiences are starved for a clear, no-nonsense approach to SMART goals.

Gamestorming is SMART as Hell

Gamestorming is SMART as Hell

There are not a lot of books that hit their target perfectly . “Gamestorming“, by Dave Gray, Sunni Brown, and James Macanufo, is a bulls-eye. Gamestorming is Specific. It knows who it’s for – Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers; what it is – a Playbook; and where it should be used – in the

What Are Your Values?

What Are Your Values?

Being SMART as Hell requires that you know your priorities and execute on them. Your Mission, Vision, and Goals clarify what you do, but Values are just as important because they clarify how you do what you do. I’ve always been clear about my values… or so I thought. In May, I

SMART as Hell Graphic Recording

One of the great benefits of presenting at large conferences is that you get to meet incredibly talented people. Last week, at my ASTD 2011 session, “How smart are your SMART Goals?”, I met Jeannel King of Big Picture Solutions. Jeannel introduced herself as a graphic recorder and facilitator, which meant we

Are Your Actions & Goals Aggressively Set?

Over the past three months, I have presented SMART as Hell and the 24 criteria of the SMARTometer more than a dozen times. Everyone in the audience seems to have their own favorite criteria: the one that resonates with them as a pet peeve, the one that gets them ‘unstuck’
