The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

In this interview, Chief Master Sergeant Wright demonstrated the idea of moving from E to P – or when you stop relying on your natural abilities and start implementing models and systems to help you focus on your priorities.  

So it’s time to get hyper clear: What are your priorities? What earns the right to show up at your desk? What models and systems can you implement to ensure everyone in your team is focusing on their top priorities?
