Getting your people to do what you want

In a nutshell, employees do what is measured, incentivised and celebrated.

And maybe this applies to your children as well?

For a specific task…

  • What do you measure
  • What do you incentivise
  • What do you celebrate?

Are these things focussed on the results you want?

Do you do enough of each?

Are they in balance?

What could you add or change to get better results?

Or more widely, what does the culture of your organisation measure, incentivise and celebrate?

Does this explain, in part, why your people do what they do?

Does this explain, in part, why your people don’t do what you want them to do?

One of the pitfalls, however, is excessive measurement. As has been said, “A pig never got fatter by weighing it more often”.

My best wishes, Paul
