And here is my thoughts on this regard, You will need to get the DMP ( Definite Major Purpose ) of your team members or downlines. DMP are the visions or clear goals of your team members.
As the head of our department or being the leader of our team in our project, the objectives are set by the project charter set by the owners or stake holders. We as the managers of that project will set our goals that will be attainable and feasible. We will set the deliverable and schedule, program of works to attain each activities in conjunction with the parameters, guidelines, procedures and methods that we made to be implemented and followed to achieved the success of each set goals or expected results.
Before you can hold people accountable for outcomes, you have to let the team members know what success looks like when you hit and accomplished that goals and what you expect to see as a result of their efforts.
Applying the same rules to your home business or networking business as you would to your corporate job, and you will be seeing results in no time! Your will have more satisfactions because you get your goals with the efforts of your team, and they also hit their own goals.
That is what networking is all about, helping other people in your team to achieve their goals and you will have your own goals attained.
When setting expectations and success goals, we should at least consider the following 4 fundamentals:
1. Clarity of Goals: Expectations should focus on outcomes, not activities. Leaders often make the mistake of attempting to direct the process that will be used, rather than focusing on the desired outcome. As a leader, you will need to identify the goal, set the vision and imagery outcomes but let the team members be responsible for achieving or exceeding it in their own way.
2. Relevance of Vision: Relevance helps define the "why" of what is expected. Relevance of your vision will set clear points on your desires. And it will fuel or fire up your actions from few steps to consistent massive actions. If your team completely understands the importance of what they are asked to deliver, they will be more committed to the result because they see how it fits into the big picture, as well as how their efforts impact their own lives and the lives of others. And how their vison will change their future by the actions that they will exert today.
3. Make it Simple: Simplicity creates a sense of grounding for both individuals and teams. If you identify what is expected in simple, straightforward terms, there is a clear understanding of exactly what is expected end results. With a simple goal but attainable guidelines and step by step action plan in achieving your objectives, it will create an easier implementation and more likely achievable goals. Adding unnecessary complexity to a process often creates the illusion of 'unattainability'. Simplify, simplify, simplify. Most goals in life are easier to accomplish than we think they are.
4. Consistency of Actions: After setting expectations and goals, you must maintain a consistent approach to managing expectations that can be applied in most situations. Now the action facilitates a sense of unity and equality. Your daily action should concide with your plans of action set as guides so that you won't be derail. And no if and no buts will let your action been disturbed. No procrastination will ever been entertain. It's all work as per plan so that your plan will work.
Expectations and Goals are difficult to control and impossible to turn off. Everybody has them. Expectations drive performance and establish benchmarks for success. Goals is the set of your bench mark for success. As a leader, Your team is relying on your expertise, and it's up to you to help them understand what you need to create great outcomes.
Managing expectations gives you the power to control the environment (to the extent that is possible) and guide people down the long and winding road toward delivering exceptional results.
Here is my Goals and expectations: I need to help 10 people from my team to work closely within the 90 days challenge period to have them sponsor 20 down-lines each.
I already had 7 confirmed members who wanted and accepted this challenge. Please let me know if you wanted to e part of this 90 day challenge.
Keep going – through frustrations, barriers, challenges, pain. It does get easier over time.
Pretty soon you will be unconsciously competent in that which you once had to consciously work through.
To Your Success,
