Top 10 new posts of 2021

1. Leading with Outcomes: a cheat sheet (March)

Back in March, this post anticipated the launch of the Agendashift Academy and the first version of Leading with Outcomes. Today its replacement, Leading with Outcomes: Foundation, is in private beta and its launch is imminent. We’re ready to reach a broader audience now – leaders in transforming organisations – and the feedback so far has been great 🙂

And the cheat sheet itself:

4. Get unstuck and get going: Starting small with 5% and 15% outcomes (October)
