Initiate’s Assessment Tool:
In his breakthrough book on management entitled “First, Break all the Rules”, Marcus Buckingham emphasizes the importance of manager’s setting performance expectations with his or her employees. Otherwise, the manager will “always be off balance…between enforcing rules and enduring too much chaos.” This is an inefficient use of a manager’s time. Initiate’s online assessment tool called Expectations Forum, is designed to promote expectations setting between a manager and his/her employee(s) so that employees know exactly what is expected of them.
The Expectations Forum helps a manager and employee become more aware of specific performance expectations and current gaps in performance. This new tool provides a printed report which forms a basis of dialogue between a manager and employee to help the employee gain insight into his/her performance relative to the manager’s expectations.
