Setting goals, preferably in writing, for each employee ensures that they will follow through.
From the very beginning, let each person know exactly what is expected of them, why it is expected, how they can develop and how their effectiveness will be measured.
Allocate undisturbed time each day to focus on your priorities and long term planning. Focus on one key thing only.
Write a charter for your personal success and your business success, set one year, two year and five year goals. Every three months assess your progress.
Defining your team's charter is perhaps the most important action you can take to ensure team success and customer satisfaction.
Making your teams, purpose, values and ground rules explicit gives a strong foundation for high performance.
If you don't know where you're going the path you choose is irrelevant. Begin with your desired outcome in mind and work backwards to establish key steps.
Delegating increases your productivity and leverages your resources.
By delegating the right task to the right person your team can achieve more.
