A middle manager in Oil & Gas sector in the US was having a problem executing her to-do tasks at the same time last year and she would like to do things differently before the end of the year. How would you suggest she goes about executing her ‘wildly important goals’ amid chaos at work or home? The 4 Disciplines represent a simple, repeatable strategy for executing your most important priorities according to Chris McChesney. The 4 Disciplines of Execution are based on the following principles:

• Discipline 1: Create focus on the wildly important goals based on your “Mission- Vision-Strategy”
• Discipline 2: Apply consistent energy to the activities that are most predictive of goal success. Act on the lead measures.
• Discipline 3: Ensuring your team is in the game and knows if you are winning or losing. Keep a compelling Scoreboard.
• Discipline 4: Create a team that is accountable to each other for driving the breakthrough result. Create a cadence of accountability!

Conclusion: According to the middle manager, since applying the above principles, she has made significant improvement in achieving her wildly important goals. “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence”. Based on the 4 Disciplines of Execution what would you do differently?
