Focus on smaller bits of information over a longer period of time.


#4

Set Written, Measurable Goals.


Keeping your keepers.

In a study of more than 584 employed Americans, how many hadnt established any career goals in collaboration with their manager?

82%

Written goals matter because

Many complaints about underperformance really stem from two things:

Unclear expectations

Poor communication

Without written performance standards, employees measure themselves against:

Each other


#5. Be super clear about promotion channels / career paths.

Got staff who want to be these guys?

Fine.

Make em prove theyre worth it.


#6: Give Feedback

In the same study of more than 584 employed Americans, how many hadnt received any kind of useful feedback from supervisors in the last six months?

Four Promises You Should Make to Every Employee

1.) You will work to develop them as people in alignment with company goals.

2.) You will give them the resources they need to do their job effectively.

3.) You will provide them with transparent and frequent communication.

4.) You will hold them accountable for clearly-defined performance standards.


You should also measure for these.

1. Micromanagement

2. Ambiguity

3. Chaos


#8. Give them a MAP


The Dixon Hughes P Test

Crunch numbers? Psshaw!


#9: Mo Money. Less Turnover.


But you still need.

#10

Great managers.


Hold your managers accountable for how employees answer survey questions about them.


The only thing worse than training employees and losing them, it NOT training and keeping them. Zig Ziglar
