Developing Performance Goals & Standards
In an ideal world, every member of your team understands his or her role and responsibilities and performs those duties flawlessly. Your role as a team leader is to motivate your team members. It is essential to the success of your team that you not only develop performance goals with team members, but also acquire the employee performance management skills to hold them accountable.
Although building consensus around performance standards and responsibilities from your team members is difficult, developing performance goals and standards collaboratively ensures commitment. As a result, team members agree to the process and are dedicated to its success.
