With Goals, FAST Beats SMART

Traditional goal setting undermines the alignment, coordination, and agility needed to execute strategy.
Art Jones's insight:

Excerpt: According to conventional wisdom, goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. But SMART goals undervalue ambition, focus narrowly on individual performance, and ignore the importance of discussing goals throughout the year. To drive strategy execution, leaders should instead set goals that are FAST — frequently discussed, ambitious, specific, and transparent.

Coffee Shops Are Better Than Open-Plan Offices, According to Science

Coffee Shops Are Better Than Open-Plan Offices, According to Science | High Performance Leadership | Scoop.it
It's not just the noise that's distracting. It's the annoying behavior of your co-workers.
Art Jones's insight:

Which one of these locations do you enjoy working the most?  In the corporate open floor plan offices, a co-working space or coffee shop? This article provides interesting sets of rules that influence our behavior in each type.

 

Excerpt: 

For example, in a coffee shop, all patrons are created equal. There is significant social pressure to adhere to common-sense politeness, such as no telephone calls (you take it outside) and no loud talking.

 

By contrast, in an office, social pressure exists within an informal hierarchy of clout. While there may be rules--even posted rules--similar to the unspoken rules of coffee shop behavior, breaking those rules--and escaping censure for doing so--is a highly visible and universally understood way to establish dominance.
