Work the Plan
Establish key priorities. Write them into your work plan. Stay focused on accomplishing them. It’s that simple! A work team that is consistently focused on accomplishing key priorities and key performance indicators
is likely to be highly effective. And so,
of course, is the supervisor or manager
of that team. Learn to assess strategic
goals and how to align your team to those goals – all while taking into consideration individual objectives and performance as well as delegation commensurate with responsibilities.
