You’ve probably heard that the devil lives in the details. I suppose that’s a clever way of saying that there will be trouble if you overlook any of these finer points.
But what happens if as the manager you miss the big picture? The workers you lead need to know three things today.
First, what is goal of what we are doing? (Why are we doing this in the first place?) Second, how will we know if we do a good job today? (What will our measurement be?) Third, do we have the resources we need to work today? (How will we do this?)
Answer these questions and let the devil fend for himself!
