In marketing parlance, positioning is what sets you apart from the competition. This applies to your career.
Ask precise questions and let your employees respond.
To train employees to think like CEOs, ask them to evaluate your company’s SWOT: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
Have your employees rate each of their job duties from one to 10 based on enjoyment level.
No one’s perfect, and eventually you will need to prod even your No. 1 star to shape up. If you only point out failings in your mediocre workers—and overlook weaknesses in your top professionals—you may face morale problems.
To win over your staff, communicate like a star salesperson.
Many employees tell us that their managers are inaccessible. With bosses “in the field” or always “in meetings,” it’s hard for staffers to communicate late-breaking developments during the workday.
Only the most naive employees still believe that they’ll rise to the top on pure merit. Getting ahead requires a mix of political savvy, street-smart aggressiveness and common sense.
Men are stronger at business analysis and strategic planning and women are more results-driven, according to a recent study of North American managers.
Warn your staff not to send frivolous e-mail.
