What’s the end game of your work? What do you strive for? When you work … what are you striving for at your company? Are you striving for a paycheck? Logging hours to pay the bills? OR … are you working for RESULTS? Yes, we all need to pay the bills and buy things. BUT, is that really your motivation for working at your company? Not sure what your RESULTS should be? Ask your manager/leader what are the RESULTS you should be working towards in your role.
Are you riddling your staff with forms that demonstrate … to the “nth” degree … the hours they log for your company? Are you still thinking that hours logged is better than RESULTS? How are you leading your teams/staff to strive for RESULTS? Are you teaching your staff to begin with the end in mind? Do they have a “win” in their work? How do you celebrate RESULTS in your company and with your team? Do you think that work efficiency can increase if your team knows what is expected of them tied to RESULTS?
Don’t miss this … “Front-Line Employees” usually don’t see the RESULTS because they are too busy doing them. As a Leader, it’s your job to help them see that their work is tied to a RESULT. And … make sure you celebrate those RESULTS with them.
Study the old picture above. Look at their faces. YOU are here for a brief moment … then … you’re gone. How you work … and to what end … matters.
