Measure Results, Not Time
Peter Drucker once implored: “You can only manage what you measure.” This is sage advice for leaders to consider. Many leaders, however, get caught in a retail mindset whereby they measure results via the measure of time. In a certain way, this makes sense since many leaders compensate their team members by the number of hours they work. Time does not necessarily serve as the best measure of productivity. Just because a team member is onsite does not mean that they are being wildly productive. As such, seek to have a deeper measure of productivity. Developing meaningful measures sometimes takes time and creativity. In the end though, a meaningful measure provides a barometer as to the contributions that team members deliver to the organization.
