Weekly team meetings are vital to share information, make decisions, and align your team for business execution – but the subtleties of each individual’s particular needs cannot be fully addressed in a team meeting.
One of the keys to effectively manage and coach your people is to make everyone’s performance visible. The Harvard Business School calls this management approach “radical transparency” and it has been found to deliver superior results.

From observing many thousands of clients using RESULTS.com software, I have learned some subtle differences that can make your Task management and Delegation much more effective.
A survey published in Training magazine showed that employees want to discuss their Goals, Tasks and Results frequently, but most managers are not making the time to have these conversations. Here is a summarized overview.
Focus on less to achieve more: a secret to winning in business!
We see lots of managment articles about how important it is to empower employees. We are encouraged to give people clear directions and the necessary authority to get the job done, and then take a step back to let them get it on with it without micromanaging them.
In the past, it was thought that you needed to work face to face in order to create highly productive teams (and Yahoo made headlines in 2013 by requiring everyone to turn up to the office), but is this a fact or just an opinion?
I read some interesting research in HBR recently where 160,576 employees and 30,661 managers were studied to determine what style of management produced the most engaged, productive employees. Here is our take on the research findings:
Start by clearly defining what “done” looks like. We see far too many companies choosing Project Goals to improve their business without a clearly defined finish line of what the “100% completed” Project looks like. Or, if the Project is part of a longer-term strategic initiative, what is the specific milestone that you intend to reach by the end of this quarter?
Since implementing the RESULTS.com software, communication between staff members regarding reaching targets and goals has improved ten-fold. (There is also healthy competition with the new “gamificiation” feature!)
