TIME FOR SELF-ASSESSMENT

From "The Gold Standard" by Mike Krzyzewski:

How can a team reach its potential if it cannot look at itself with a critical eye? There is always a need to valuate performance in battle or in business and then retrain based on your assessments. In team building, self-assessment must take place both at the group level and on and individual level for each of the team members. This doe not exclude the leader, whose individual self-assessment may be the most crucial of all.

Our teams, self-assessment should take place not just from year to year or quarterly, but from day today. There has to be room for change. And when you recognize a need for change, you and your team have to e willing to make it. Improvisation and flexibility should coexist with planning and preparation. And, when you really think about it, it shouldn’t be hard. You should always want to find ways to get better.

Becoming your best is an ongoing process
