Ten People Management Tips

  1. Create Expectations

    Tell people up front what is expected of them.

  2. Set a Stretch Challenge

    Make people grow and coach them along the way.

  3. Never move too slowly on critical personnel decisions

    Dragging your feet here will really hurt your business.

  4. Involve people in both DEVELOPING and IMPLEMENTING strategy

    Too much tops down brings the top down.

  5. Call a Spade a Spade

    Address poor performance or it'll cost you -- BIG.

  6. Reward your stars!

    Pay good performers what they're worth, and it will be returned to you tenfold.

  7. Get the Right Person for the job

    Define the job and find the person who can do it rather than redefining the job to fit the capabilities of the incumbent.

  8. Require that People do Their Homework

    When people are not prepared for meetings, the company is not prepared to make decisions. Stop the presses!

  9. Constantly Upgrade Skills

    Provide continuous training to keep people at their best.

  10. Recognize That Pride Drives Performance More Than Money

    Complement people for a job well done.
