- Demand honest feedback: You want to know how you are doing and what you can improve on right?
- Set standards: Don't reward average workers.
- Tackle problems early and fast: Problems will only get worse if you don't.
- Hire slowly and hire well. Go beneath the surface during interviews. Don't ask the same interview questions over and over. Instead, make your future employees give a presentation. Get to know them and how they work. Let the whole team interview the employee and get buy in from everyone. Don't be the only one making the final decision.
- Know the drill: On a scale of 1-10, managers who rank themselves a 7 tend to hire 5s. Why? Because average supervisors are afraid of being shown up. Top managers hire 10s and are not worried about being shown up. BE A 10!!
- Circle back: Set high expectations and make sure you circle back to see if goals are met.
