Fun fact… It is said that when cooking spaghetti, if you want to find out if it’s cooked, you toss a noodle against a wall and if it sticks, it’s done.
When you run a business, you do your best to make educated decisions. As my friend, Cris
mentioned to me the other day, it often feels more like you're tossing cooked spaghetti on the wall to see if it sticks. She’s not wrong lol
When working with businesses, we talk about using values and mission to help guide decisions. When we filter decisions that way, we can find confidence that we are on the right track. That doesn’t mean that every idea will pass the spaghetti doneness test! It does mean that you can be confident knowing it wasn’t a decision that goes against the culture and direction of your company. If the spaghetti doesn’t stick, it’s an opportunity to evaluate if it needs to cook a little longer or if it simply won’t for your clients.
This is where a Thinking Partner comes in handy too. The evaluation can be challenging if you don’t have a team of people or inner circle to lean into. And sometimes you need to think outside of your circle to try something very new or different. If you haven’t tried a Discovery Session yet, this would be a great opportunity to see how coaching works. If you have done a Discovery Session, let’s get a coaching session set up. You won’t regret it!
