204: #TakeAction Day 1: First, Select Your Vehicle

By October 1, 2018 January 4th, 2019 No Comments

I don’t have an interview for you today.  In fact, for the month of October, we are going to do something completely different.

I ask practitioners about their challenges where ever I go, and the single piece of feedback I get is that for all the great ideas they read and hear about, it is hard to put them into practice

First, I know many of you listen to the pod while commuting or working out – and it is hard to stop in the middle of a podcast and takes notes on what actions you want to take.

And second, there is always a challenge for people between wanting to invest in their own personal development, and the time pressures of a hectic job.

We have crowned October as #TakeActionOctober – because no phrase is complete these days without a hashtag!

October will be all about taking the actions you need to elevate the influence and impact of you AND your team.

Every day this month, you will hear a micro-sized pod – no more than 5 minutes per day – that I selected to inspire you to act.  

We’ve curated Content from the back catalog of over 200 Art of Procurement episodes, and more than 1,000 articles featured in our weekly newsletter This Week in Procurement.  I’ll also throw in some of my own experiences for good measure.

The commitment I ask of you is to take one action to put into practice – or to coach or mentor a team member or peer – your key takeaway from each episode.
