Accountability Starts with an Expectation 


Everyone wants to talk about performance feedback. A lot of people want to talk about tearing up the performance review form. But performance does not start with feedback. It does not depend on an annual form. It does depend on clear work assignment. It cries for a manager to describe what successfully completed work looks like – a clear end result expectation. Managers assign work. A work assignment is an expectation. It may seem simple. It may sound easy. It is not. It requires careful thought, better communication, and two-way collaboration, and effective conformation – elements too often lost in the rush of meeting day-to-day priorities.

In this presentation, Mike Deblieux, will provide a template for making a work assignment based on a clear end-result performance expectation. Mike will use his extensive experience training managers in groups and individually to offer practical tips and real world examples for you use and share with managers and supervisors.

This presentation will help you:

  • (What) Set clear end-result performance expectations,
  • (How) Collaborate to determine what the employee will do to be successful,
  • (When) Align goals and day-to-day responsibilities,
  • (Measure) Confirm the agreed upon process to provide clarity at evaluation time.
