Clear responsibility over work is key to success.

As is giving people the latitude to do what they need to do.

1. Figure out what each person on your team is responsible for.

2. Set a clear goal with a clear metric that they’re bought into. A SMART Goal: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Bound.

3. Set a date to check in on the goal. Put the meeting on the calendar right away.

4. Leave everyone alone to do their shit.

Then, when its time to check in, do that. And at that point discuss any feedback or progress that needs to be made.

By overmonitoring you’re just going to make people anxious, reduce their performance, and increase the possibility of failure.
