Employees in every company might come with flaws and different subjective as compared to yours. However, this doesn’t mean that you fire them instantly. Rather, as a good employer, you work with them and help them in their personal growth which in turn helps your company!
Tips on Setting Goals with Employees
Setting goals is one way of broadening your employees’ horizons. It also makes them respect you and your cause. The next thing you know, your employees will be fit to work with efficiency and provide just the thing you need for the growth of your company or business!
Simply follow these impending rules:
1. Assign Something Else
Assign your employees with tasks other than their work. Task which test their mind capability and provide you an insight of how your workers are. After this, when you find out about your employers, then it’s time to work with them on their own level and slowly push them out of their comfort zone.
2. Reward Them for Their Efforts
It is a huge turn off for an employee when he/she works too hard and are in return met with solemn nods or more shouts. Congratulate your employees for their efforts and work. reward them if possible, give them a few minutes off for lunch or let them go early and give them a raise whichever seems suitable according to the task handled. This makes them respect you and they actually want to work for your success.
3. Show Them Your Vision
Talk to them and describe them your vision. What you want to achieve, what you want to build, how much you want to progress and why it is important to you. show them the world with your eyes so they can themselves understand the necessity of it.
4. Assign SMART Goals
SMART actually stands for: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound. Assign goals and tasks and activities which work in yours and your company’s best interests. Not the type of objectives which are impossible to manage or achieve. Challenge them but at the same time, don’t be too rough on them. Work with them, encourage them. Do not degrade them.
5. Work with The Bad Employers
It is natural to assume that not all people manage to provide their best. Some employers know their line of work but fail to provide a polished version of it. Don’t get mad immediately. Work with them, as a good leader, lead them towards their goal with precision, efficiency and courteously. Lift them up instead of digging them deep. Remember, sometimes you’ll find the most precious stones in the deepest gravels of earth!
6. Cooperate Instead of Compete
Cooperation is extremely important between people of every caliber. Cooperate with your employees. Competition will only get you so far. Cooperate in your work and your tasks and see the way your employees emphasize you above all.
Hence employees if handled correctly can make you touch the sky or make you lie in the deepest trench of the ocean. Choose your option wisely!
