||They want to succeed and to please. Assign the job. Provide the resources. Clarify outcomes. Acknowledge their success. Repeat.
||The mistake leaders make is they reward their high performers with more work. Why not …they get it done. And, if you continue, they will burn out and reward you with their resignations. Really reward them. Really. Repeat.
||Everyone wants to get their hands on the best team members. And high performers hate to say no. Find that space where they excel and build a shelter around it, free from distractions. Find their lane. Let them go. Repeat.
||Did I say that already? Here's the deal - reward them in a way that is meaningful to them - not you! What makes them tick? What gets their juices flowing? What makes them smile inside and out? That's what you give them in order for them to see you as the rock star you are and to prevent them from jumping ship. P.S. A paycheck is not a reward. Repeat.
