Is your organization long on great ideas but short on follow-through? The inability to maintain momentum on any given initiative seems to be a common challenge for businesses and nonprofits alike. One of our favorite books, “The Knowing-Doing Gap” by Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton addresses this pervasive phenomenon. "You're likely to find talk substituting for action," they write, "when no follow-up is done to ensure that what was said is actually done.” One solution to the knowing-doing gap, they say, is to use simple language to describe learning and action.
As the year rapidly draws to a close, make it a point to identify and implement at least three strategies to keep your good work moving forward with renewed purpose and vigor. We've provided the articles below, "Are You for Real?" and "What Gets Measured", to give you a little inspiration.
