When a House Is On Fire, You Don’t Need Metrics

Impact is the goal. It doesn’t have to be complex.

SOMETIMES it’s okay to lead around ACTION over outcomes and metrics. There are times when we simply need to command and communicate ACTION. “This one’s not about metrics. A house is on fire, a family is trapped inside, let’s move!”

If your assessment of the situation is correct and clear, then your team and (funding) partners will follow you. They will say, “I get it. We’re with you. Let’s move.”
