Ignite Your Results, 24-Style

With the news that one of the most popular TV shows in recent history, 24, will be returning next year, I thought it might be time to rev up Netflix and check out a few earlier seasons to get ready for the return of Jack Bauer.

As I visited some of those outstanding early seasons, I couldn’t help but wonder how someone could get so much done in such a short window of time. Can businesses ignite their own teams, 24-style, to accomplish the unexpected? If you leverage these 4 tactics, you will be well on your way.

  1. Clearly state your objectives

  2. Create a sense of urgency

  3. Leverage the strengths of your team

  4. Constantly communicate where you are and your next course of action

Any other lessons from 24 you could apply to your sales efforts?
