Another common and costly leader mistake that can result in a loss of credibility and trust.
MISTAKE: Imposing goals on team members.
I can’t stress enough the importance of making the goal-setting process collaborative. Imposing individual goals on someone is the fastest way to lose commitment. And, leaders should be leery about imposing their expectations through online collaboration tools. Technology can be successfully used to support the goal-setting process, but should never take the place of crucial conversations.
It is imperative to involve your people in the process and provide coaching along the way to ensure they meet your high expectations.
