What to do when your business

Is it as simple as making sure your people know WHAT do do?

Why People don’t do what they are suppose to do (from Coaching for improved work performance by Ferdinand F. Fournies) as analyzed from 25,000 supervisors and managers around the world responding to the question of why employees don’t do what they are suppose to do.

  1. They don’t know what they are supposed to do.
  2. They don’t know how to do it.
  3. They don’t know why they should do it.
  4. They think they are doing it (lack of feedback)
  5. There are obstacles beyond their control.
  6. They think it will not work.
  7. They think their way is better.
  8. They think something is more important (priorities)
  9. There is no positive consequence to them for doing it.
  10. There is a negative consequence to them for doing it.
  11. There is a positive consequence to them for not doing it.
  12. There is no negative consequence to them for not doing it.
  13. Personal limits (incapacity).
