How many times have you asked an employee to do something that doesn't get done? How many times and in how many ways do you need to ask?
With proper agreements in place, and a high degree of relating well to each other, both you and your team can share in the accountability for projects and assignments that will get done well and on time. We introduce a simple model that will allow for respectful agreements to the results that everyone owns but no one controls.
HINT: Anchor your conversation in the RESULT you both agree is important. Always start there, by determining a clear, mutually agreed on outcome, and come back to it whenever the conversation goes sideways.
