Stress Express Tip: Give Crystal Clear Expectations to Your People
Welcoa leader David Hunnicutt says that only 10% of all employers have crystal clear expectations for their employees. That’s especially astonishing when you need them to perform at high levels under significant pressure. If they don’t know exactly what is expected of them, how can they succeed?
David suggested managers sit with every employee and take out two 3×5″ cards. Each one write down what they think is expected of that employee. If the two cards don’t match, management needs to clarify. Otherwise your people will burn out quickly and be unhappy. 80% of the American workforce says they are burnt-out. Help prevent it by clarifying your expectations of your people.
