To be an effective leader, it’s not enough just ‘doing things right’ – you also need to be ‘doing the right things’. So what are the 'right things'? Get an SPG!

What is an SPG? 

A single pre-eminent goal that is specific and concrete enough to enable the prioritization of your daily activities.

Can I have more than one? 

Sorry, you may only have one at a time.

Is my SPG the same as my mission? 

Not exactly, your SPG should sit directly under your mission, vision and values--and right above your individual strategies. 

How does my SPG affect my day-to-day routine? 

All of your daily activities should flow from your SPG. Is the meeting you're conducting on Tuesday conducive to achieving your SPG? If not,  perhaps you shouldn't waste your team's time. 

By figuring out what your SPG is you'll have a heightened awareness of what your real priorities are. Need help figuring out what your SPG is? Download the first chapter of Do Lead today.
