Barry Deutsch's insight:

As you know, I am a huge proponet, if you can't measure it, it's not worth managing. Here is a good article from Hubspot on setting sales objectives and then breaking it down at the activity level. We call our process SOARing in the Vistage Community - comparable to SMART goals, metrics, KPIs, OKRs - defining outcomes, results, objectives, performance, expectations at a quantifiable level.

 

Not going through this exercise leads to failure at every level - hiring, performance management, and most importantly, employee engagement (productivity).

Good reminders of accountability and performance management. One of the key points is about having regular feedback sessions, a point I've been stressing on doing 1-to-1s in my Managing Remotely in a Crisis Workshop.

 

Are all your managers conducting regular 1-to-1s with their direct reports on a weekly basis. See my LinkedIn articles on the rationale of conducting 1-to-1s and an efficient model to do them in a 20-30 minute timeframe every week.
