Words of Wisdom on Employees
Over the years, I've had the privilege of observing many successful leaders
execute a variety of strategies in their quest for success. The most effective
tactic I have ever witnessed is the simple and constant application of
expectations, accountability, and consequences!
Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees,
motivate them, and reward them. If you do all those things effectively,
you can't miss.
I don't think I'm the primary motivator. I give people license to be
themselves and motivate others in that way. We give people the opportunity
to be a maverick. You don't have to fit into a constraining mold at work―you
can have a good time.
Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not
to tolerate nonperforming individuals.
Numerous motivational studies show that employees typically place a high
value on getting information about their job, their performance and how
the company is doing.
When was the last time you asked your employees if they have the right
level of challenge in their work?
Stars radiate light. Black holes absorb energy. We need to invest in
our stars―not our black holes!
The character and qualifications of the leader are reflected in the men
he selects, develops and gathers around him. Show me the leader and I
will know his men. Show me the men and I will know their leader. Therefore,
to have loyal, efficient employees, be a loyal and efficient employer.
Research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work,
recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are
going on in the company.
A great employee who is poorly managed is no better than a poor employee
who is managed well.
Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he
should be, and he will become what he could be.
Which horses win races―those the jockey whips the hardest, or the
ones who enjoy running the most?
Employees tend to live up to their manager's expectations of them. If
a manager's expectations are high, productivity is likely to be excellent.
