Raise the Bar on Employee Expectations


Your employees will rarely perform above your expectations. That’s why you should keep raising them. Constant feedback will show your employees where they stand — and where they should be going.

If you’re bending the rules for one low-performing employee, the rest of your staff will certainly notice. Low standards produce low morale and low performance levels throughout your operation. That’s why you can’t be afraid to discipline when you see a problem. Here are some tips on doing it effectively:

  • Discipline immediately
  • Be specific in explaining the problem
  • Focus on the performance problem, not the employee
  • Ask for the employee’s help in solving the problem
  • Reach an agreement and write it down
  • Express confidence in the employee’s ability to solve the problem
  • Praise the employee at the first sign of improvement
