The fundamentals of leadership are the following: setting expectations, holding people accountable, giving people responsibility, and motivating others. For any leader to be successful, he or she must master these baseline skills. They are the baseline activities which support effective daily work. We will learn and solve all of the above using the interactive Supply Chain Simulation called “The Fresh Connection”
At organizations, projects begin, tasks assigned, efforts are made, deadlines set, and then missed. Deliverables get promised but not delivered but not delivered. Agreements are misunderstood or never made. It’s typically not people wanting to do a bad job. It’s usually because we fail to communicate in a clear or specific manner about tasks assigned or accepted.
INTERVIEWING AND SELECTING EMPLOYEES
Selecting well qualified employees is one of the most important responsibilities of a manager. In vest the time up front and you’ll be repaid with employees who require less training, provide better service, and stay with the organization longer. In addition, these same employees will be those who take you through these difficult economic times as they match the requirements of the job and the organization’s culture.
MONITORING AND DEVELOPING PEOPLE
Organizations need to help their employees succeed and maximize performance as well as employees want the opportunity to do more and grow. Developing others is critical to retaining talent, driving higher levels of employee engagement, and ultimately impacts an organization’s success.
Performance measurement is the regular systematic collection, analysis and reporting of data that tracks resources used, work produced and whether specific outcomes were achieved. We must identify and utilize measures that are critical to the success of the organization. As well, these same measures must help us identify potential problems before something goes wrong so we can take early corrective action
