In Patrick Lencioni’s book The Three Signs of a Miserable Job, he talks about the following:
- Immeasurable – if nothing is measured, then nothing can be improved
- Irrelevant – it’s critical to know who the work affects
- Anonymity – knowing and caring about personal life is important
In a similar manner, there are three questions entrepreneurs should answer for every employee:
- Who’s my boss?
- What’s my job?
- How do I know if I’m doing it well?
It seems simple, but you’d be amazed how many employees can’t answer these three little questions. Why? Many leaders don’t spend the time to build a healthy organization. Great leaders know that everything depends on great team members, and the foundation is the culture of the organization.
What else? Can you answer these three questions for everyone in your company?
