Clear goals, plus timely and effective feedback lead to top performance.
Another cornerstone of effective delegation is the Rhythm & Routine of leadership communication. After the vision, plan, and work are clear, make sure key performance data can be measured. Is your team growing revenue, becoming more efficient, lowering costs, and increasing profit? If we communicate these results weekly we will have great months, quarters, and years of profitable growth.
“Things that get measured get done”. – Jim Collins, Good to Great.
We like to say these things are simple, but not easy. Leaders generally know them, but lack good models of effective application. I will close with one more truth. Your work is much more difficult without CLARITY. Lack of results is frustrating to every member of the team and often has significant implications (stress, financial losses, sacrificed family time, customer and employee turnover).
