Expectations go both ways. Describe the outcome you want to create for you and your employees by identifying expectations.
State your expectations and desired outcome, then invite them to share their expectations and how they’ll affect those same outcomes.
There are core values that apply to everyone and everything. They need to be set clearly and early.
Then there are personal expectations that are unique to the employee. They need to be set in partnership with the employee. It should be set in a way that meets their goals.
To build buy-in from your employees, you need to be clear and specific. Ask clarification questions, check for understanding and encourage an open and honest discussion.
When employees know what’s expected, they don’t waste time or energy. Instead, they maximize their time and skills.
The object of setting expectations is to ensure employees feel connected, empowered and inspired to perform at their peak.
Engage them with the organizational mission, priorities and goals. Then get their feedback and support for the “what” and the “how” to accomplish those.
You cannot delegate accountability.
When they say yes, then they have understood and agreed to take accountability to meet those outcomes.
