There is no point in having a plan if you’re not going to follow it.
But there is also no point in avoiding making a plan, simply because you didn’t follow it in the past.
Not having a plan is okay for you – “I’ll wing it and figure it out when I get there” – but definitely not good for your team and you as a leader.
If it’s your first time planning, getting started is easy – ask your team what they need to see and start working through that list, inevitably you will add other pieces that will be helpful not only to them, but you as well.
But don’t avoid it, bad leaders avoid it, good leaders struggle through and figure it out.
