Hey Sobel, this one is for you!
I’m not sure who gave me the following items that have been taped to my monitor for the past 2 years nor who orginally wrote it but nevertheless, major props to both.
If you have employees the following may seem simplistic to you. If that is the case, then I challenge you to ask your staff if you are actually doing these things. Easy to do is also easy to not do.
Insights on what employees want from you:
-To know where the company is headed and why
-to know their roles, responsibilities and what is expected of them
-to know how they will be evaluated and rewarded
-to utilize their talents in the best way possible
-to feel appreciated and valued - that their work and ideas matter
-to be coached - challenged, motivated and held accountable
-to have the right tools, training and authority to do their jobs
-to contribute in a meaningful way to the company and to its mission
-to grow and develop - to reach their potential
-to have an emotionally connected, competent manager/leader of character support their success
