Mind Your Business

WITH COREY CHAMBAS

The power of being aware

In my experience, making people “aware” of their performance and using management by exception creates better results and less work for a manager, as people will usually self-manage. It’s also kinder to provide absolute clarity about what good looks like.

Breaking down goals to achieve them

The way Justine Thompson, a Nike master trainer, discusses breaking down athletic goals is very analogous to how you might want to think about your goals and tackling them with manageable action items.

Sooner is better — at work, that is

At work, sooner is better. At times when I need to deal with a difficult personnel management situation and I put it off, invariably something bad happens in that person's personal life.
