Your employees need to know what is expected of them so they can be successful in 2018. Leaders are responsible for setting clear expectations for their employees and teams. How do you set clear expectations?
The first step is defining the responsibilities of their role.
When was the last time you updated job descriptions for your organization?
Do you have a job description for the various roles within your company?
Defining the job for employees is critical. If you don't know what their role entails, sit down and create a job description to share with employees.
Once you have defined the role, leaders need to evaluate what success in each role looks like. Leaders can do this by identifying the who, what, when, and how.
As you finalize expectations for employees it's important to make sure they have the right knowledge and information to meet them. Leaders are responsible for identifying the right employee for the right tasks. If an employee may be weaker in certain areas needed to be successful, provide them the right training and resources to be successful.
Leaders should let employees work on meeting this expectations in a supportive environment. Employees need to feel comfortable coming to you for support and guidance when needed. The worksheet below will help leaders set expectations effectively and have a successful 2018.
