   The following eight steps will help you and
    your employees interact in ways that make
    you work more efficiently and effectively.
   These steps will help you help your
    employees feel more motivated / charged on
    the job and build the connection between
    their own interests and the interests of the
    organization.
   Step 1. Help Your Employees Stretch


   Take your employees above and beyond the status quo of just
    doing the same job the same way. Make their work challenging,
    and help them to see the big picture—and their part in it!

   Most people want to be better and more capable. But they may
    resist if they feel that higher expectations are being imposed on
    them. Make sure your employees know that you're simply trying
    to help them stretch and grow. You can do this by helping them
    set individual performance goals that exceed the existing
    requirements of their jobs. Further, if you explain how their work
    adds value to the organization and how what they do affects the
    work of others, they can figure out ways to improve.
   Step 2. Set Clear Standards


   What are the standards of performance for a particular
    job? Identify them and be specific about the outcomes that
    characterize outstanding performance and the outcomes
    that indicate unacceptable performance. How could one
    control something that he is unable to define? But that's
    the challenge you face as a manager: to improve
    performance, you've got to be able to define it.

    Again, invite discussion on this matter and listen carefully
    to what the employee has to say. Encourage each
    employee to establish his or her own parameters for
    measuring performance based on what he or she
    considers to be realistic.
   3. Define the Scope of Responsibility for
    Employees

    Make sure everyone understands who is
    responsible for each job activity. When
    employees know their roles in relationship to
    those of others, this reduces confusion and
    gives them a better sense of how they might
    work with their fellow employees to meet
    their individual objectives.
   4. Help Your Employees Buy into Higher
    Performance Standards

    Most employees want to have a role in
    raising their own performance expectations.
    The more input an employee can provide
    about the job he or she is expected to
    perform, the more likely the employee is to
    buy into the new standards.
   5. Document What You and Your Employees Agree On

    Develop a written list of performance standards for
    meeting and for exceeding the expectations you've
    agreed upon with your employees. Remember: you
    want your employees to continue to stretch, yet you
    must be sure they can attain those goals.

    Be specific about what it's going to take to reach the
    standards, In each area of job activities. Then,
    document those expectations. Give a copy of this
    document to each employee and keep one for
    yourself.
   6. Decide on a Course of Action

    Once you've set standards, review the specific tasks of each
    person's job. Identify and discuss the areas in which each
    employee is skilled and qualified. Plan a course of delegation
    based on each employee's experience and competence.

    Then—and this is very important—let each employee know that
    once he or she has started the project and gained more insight
    into the intricacies of the job, you're willing to revise these
    expectations as necessary. You'll still keep the goals challenging,
    but you'll make sure they're also realistic.

    By doing this, you provide a safe environment so that each-
    employee can be open and honest with you about successes and
    struggles along the way. In other words, you're sending out a big
    message that says, "It's OK to be human!"
   7. Observe and Follow Up

    Take time to observe how things are going
    along the way. Don't wait until the end of the
    project to check in with your employees.
    Depending on each person's expertise and
    the complexity of the task being performed,
    follow up and observe the job being
    performed while it's in progress.
   8. Be Clear about Rewards

    Let employees know what to expect if they meet
    or exceed the standards you've developed. Be
    clear up front about potential rewards. Let
    employees know what's in it for them. And plan
    for them to succeed. Sure, it may be less
    expensive for the organization if employees fall
    slightly short of your expectations, because you
    can save on rewards. But the smart manager
    knows that success—even if it entails certain
    expenses at first—breeds success.

8 steps to higher performance

  • 1.
  • 2. The following eight steps will help you and your employees interact in ways that make you work more efficiently and effectively.  These steps will help you help your employees feel more motivated / charged on the job and build the connection between their own interests and the interests of the organization.
  • 3. Step 1. Help Your Employees Stretch  Take your employees above and beyond the status quo of just doing the same job the same way. Make their work challenging, and help them to see the big picture—and their part in it!  Most people want to be better and more capable. But they may resist if they feel that higher expectations are being imposed on them. Make sure your employees know that you're simply trying to help them stretch and grow. You can do this by helping them set individual performance goals that exceed the existing requirements of their jobs. Further, if you explain how their work adds value to the organization and how what they do affects the work of others, they can figure out ways to improve.
  • 4. Step 2. Set Clear Standards  What are the standards of performance for a particular job? Identify them and be specific about the outcomes that characterize outstanding performance and the outcomes that indicate unacceptable performance. How could one control something that he is unable to define? But that's the challenge you face as a manager: to improve performance, you've got to be able to define it.  Again, invite discussion on this matter and listen carefully to what the employee has to say. Encourage each employee to establish his or her own parameters for measuring performance based on what he or she considers to be realistic.
  • 5. 3. Define the Scope of Responsibility for Employees  Make sure everyone understands who is responsible for each job activity. When employees know their roles in relationship to those of others, this reduces confusion and gives them a better sense of how they might work with their fellow employees to meet their individual objectives.
  • 6. 4. Help Your Employees Buy into Higher Performance Standards  Most employees want to have a role in raising their own performance expectations. The more input an employee can provide about the job he or she is expected to perform, the more likely the employee is to buy into the new standards.
  • 7. 5. Document What You and Your Employees Agree On  Develop a written list of performance standards for meeting and for exceeding the expectations you've agreed upon with your employees. Remember: you want your employees to continue to stretch, yet you must be sure they can attain those goals.  Be specific about what it's going to take to reach the standards, In each area of job activities. Then, document those expectations. Give a copy of this document to each employee and keep one for yourself.
