Setting Expectations

If you walked up to one of your employees right now and asked him what is expected of him at work, could he answer you with solid, measurable expectations?

If he can’t then there’s a good chance that his engagement is wavering. Smart, ambitious, passionate people (you know, the ones you’re hiring) have big goals they want to achieve. They want to impress their supervisors, get things done, and make a positive impact on your business. But if they’re spinning their wheels every day to make things happen without ever really knowing what’s expected of them then they are going to feel like they’re lost. That doesn’t feel good.

Every one of your employees should be able to tell you what is expected of them – in a measurable, concrete way. This way they know if they’re doing a good job or if they’re off the mark – and knowledge is power.
