An organization exists to fulfill a purpose, and roles are created for people who have the ability to execute the responsibilities of that role. Those people are receiving payment in exchange for their services. If they’re not doing the work, you’re essentially paying them to harm your organization.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- If you’re a leader, you have the responsibility of making sure the people in those roles are fulfilling their duties.
- Pretend that you are using your own money, and at the end of each work day, you must go around and give that cash to every person who works for you. Do you feel like you’re giving them money they’ve earned?
- Set expectations and hold people accountable.
- It’s not an innate skill to know how to hold people accountable. It’s normal for it to be hard. There are a lot of resources that can help you.
