My friend recently sent me a wonderful gift.
It was the book “The 3 Big Questions for a Frantic Family” by #Patrick Lencioni.
The premise of the book is a fable of a management consultant that mentioned to his wife (who was running a frantic household with everything all over the place), “if our CEO would run their company like you run the house, we will long be out of business!”
The story continues how the wife ended up learning Patrick’s business tools and how it helped them as a family.
This book is really interesting. We all know that “the way you do one thing, is the way you do everything”.
(Most people who learn the EOS system have the same first reaction, “OMG! Why can’t we implement this at home / yeshiva / school / charity?”.)
The 3 Big Questions in the book, are:
> What makes your family unique?
> What is your family’s top rallying cry, right now?
> How will you use the answers and how will you keep it alive?
I tried this with my family, (not in a formal type of way — I just formed it into the conversation).
We found a mission and defined the objective to do on a regular basis.
We will review it Sunday afternoon for a couple of minutes. It really gets us on track.
Try it. Let me know how it goes
