Welcome to Big Things F@$t™, the weekly newsletter that equips new team leaders and managers with the tools and strategies they need to achieve extraordinary results.
Hi! My name is Jose, and after two-plus decades of leading and managing dozens of cross-functional teams across diverse industries and structures, I've discovered that I am at my best when enabling, inspiring, and motivating individuals and teams to achieve measurable growth. So after many years of journal writing, “anecdoting”, and chronicling my adventures and misadventures in corporate life, I created Big Things F@$t™: a playbook for new team leaders and managers.
Each week I will cover various topics, generally organized along four way-points:
💎 DESIGN: Sharpening Your Edge
Stay ahead of the curve by elevating your knowledge and skills in key areas such as digitization, brand management, capability building, and Return on Experimentation™. Sharpen the impact of your innovation and commercialization strategies to stay competitive and achieve success.
🚀 DEVELOP: Unleashing Potential
Unlock untapped potential in yourself and your team through a personalized approach (Progressive Engagement Mapping™) that combines focused self-development, curated coaching, and habit formation. Build bold, high-performing individuals and teams that are capable of achieving greatness.
📊 DELIVER: Driving Results
Execute with precision and speed, leveraging the intersection of strategic business planning, agile methodology, and change management. Demystify the process to engineer Incremental Value @ $peed™ to produce tangible outcomes.
♾️ ENDURE: Cultivating Growth
Cultivate a resilient, growth mindset that embraces challenges and seeks out new opportunities for learning and development. Persist and adapt through change, employing critical thinking, experimentation, and continuous self-improvement in the face of disruption and self-doubt.
Based on your feedback (thank you!), I will publish mid-week (Tues-Thur) mornings (U.S. Central Time) so that you have ample time to reflect and write down the one thing that you are going to activate and/or do differently. After all, Big Things F@$t™ team leaders create extraordinary outcomes for themselves and others by actively exploring and employing new ways of Thinking and Doing.
