Spike Lee famously said: «I do not need a dream, when I have a plan»
It is the amalgamation of three elements: my passion for Project Management (many thanks to Scot Berkun), Seth Godin’s Leadership Idea (I am an unabashed fan), and my naturally high level of emotional intelligence.
Early on, during my career as a project manager at a large corporate firm, I recognized that the basic principles of project management (PM) could be applied to individual ideas in order to move them from the ‘thought’ stage to the ‘action’ stage. I decided to treat each idea as a project. By applying the fundamental guidelines of PM, such as articulating a beginning and an end, developing time lines, and estimating how long it takes to make it happen, I was certain I could move an idea forward. Spike Lee famously said: «I do not need a dream, when I have a plan». While I think that we do need dreams I am a firm believer that for the dream to take shape and flourish we need to execute on a plan.
Then I read Seth Godin’s book «Tribe». I learnt that an idea can become a reality if it has a leader, a communication platform and followers. But how do we become leaders, build the right communication platform, and attract a tribe of loyal followers? It is quite simple really — we need a plan. I realized that by helping my clients create and execute a realistic plan I could help them find their inner-leader and develop viable channels for communication so that they may find and capture their tribe in an organic way.
