I was pondering this week about balanced scorecards as a way to measure personal performance. Michael when we worked together long ago took me through a balanced scorecard process to help me evaluate my performance for all the roles I take on. These were not just about work, actually it oftened seemed to be more about everything but work.
In thinking of this I realized that it was time to get a refresher on all the items and the process to ensure I am not cheating myself. So I have asked Michael to work with me again to help me refresh the process to ensure that I can give this the proper approach.
I think that in so doing work will be better, but more importantly I will se how I balance off the other roles I play like: Dad, son, husband, friend, uncle, member of the community, employee, employer, and the list goes on.
A great opportunity for introspection.
