A Conversational Roadmap to Increase Accountability and Initiative in Employees


Jumping to conclusions about an employee's performance will get you nowhere.

When an employee isn’t performing as you would like, the reasons can be varied. Unfortunately, managers often jump to conclusions that may not be accurate. For example, an accounts payable clerk may not complete the paperwork required to ensure that a receivable is paid promptly. You may jump to the conclusion that he is irresponsible, sloppy, doesn’t care, or is not doing the paperwork to spite you. Those reasons may be true — on the other hand, it may simply be that he’s very busy, and he doesn’t understand how important the paperwork is to the integrity of your company’s system. Obviously, if that is the case, explaining the bigger picture to him makes more sense than chastising him. This white paper reviews the importance of taking time to analyze the problem before deciding on a course of action.
