YOU'RE IN TROUBLE...
When your Sales Manager sets low goals and still fails to meet them.
Everyone Started Somewhere Even Walt Disney!
ACT NOW FOR A GREAT 2019
By Bill Blades
Here are a few statistics to ponder. Fifty percent of Fortune 500 companies from 2006 no longer exist per AEIdeas blog. And 44% of leaders consider their companies more sluggish than agile per DDI. Those numbers may seem staggering, but they also reflect opportunities for proactive organizations.
Leadership is all about your people achieving their maximum potential even if many of them don’t know what their real potential is – yet.
If you’re selecting the right talent, you must remember that over 80% of them want the opportunity to learn and grow. That responsibility lies with you; not Human Resources.
And you, and your next layer down, should learn of everyone’s goals and aspirations so that your mentoring is targeted.
Having the right talent also means hiring people that bring different strengths – not just “my kind of people.” If they know you embrace change, they will bring improvement suggestions to you regularly and you want changes not from just the top rungs of the ladder, but from the ones at the bottom too. And when ideas are brought up, don’t forget celebrations.
If the idea came from the shipping dock, go visit that person at the dock--or in your office. And, everyone needs to
be accountable for mentoring the next layer of personnel. Very simply, such leaders are even providing education so that someone takes your place as you move up. When you provide mentoring and education you are then entitled to raise expectations.
Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the edge of the pool and throw them fish? That’s targeted training!

Set a Goal to Stop Setting so Many Goals!
Goals are great but remember goal achievement is what happens at the end of a strategic implementation process. It is far better to concentrate on the actions and behaviors that need to take place on a regular basis. Who knows, you might exceed what the goal might have been by doing the right thing and doing it correctly.
