Create Behavioral Expectations to Support a High Performing Organization
“The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.” – Harvey S. Firestone
Setting expectations is one of the basic fundamentals of management; yet, many managers fail to do this very important step effectively. Behavioral expectations serve as a foundation for communicating organizational goals throughout the year. They also serve as the basis for reviewing employee performance. When you and an employee set clear expectations about the results that must be achieved and the methods or approaches needed to achieve them, you establish a path for success.
Setting Behavioral Expectations:
- Define behavioral expectations and their importance in the organization.
- Explore a process for discussing, identifying, and defining expectations aligning with the organization’s mission and vision.
- Teach employees the method for providing constructive feedback to an individual and the organization.
