“Celebrate what you want to see more of.” –Tom Peters
Do you consider yourself a ‘deal junky’? Does your adrenaline kick in when that RFI shows up? Do you feel the excitement at every ribbon cutting?
Today, Faye Davis talks with Carla Sones about keeping momentum going after wins. We all know the feeling of closing on the project, but what do we do after it is done? Economic developers are notorious for going right into the next project and looking for the next deal. Rather than moving on right away, how do we take a moment as team to reflect? After a win, we should celebrate, talk through the process, and then see what is coming up next.
In economic development, there is never an end game. We work for milestones. The work we do is in small chunks towards the goal of our communities thriving over years of work. It is even more important to celebrate our wins so we can energizer and reinvigorate our work.
