If people don’t know what to do, they’ll do anything they want or nothing at all. If they don’t know how they’re performing they’ll be apprehensive and discouraged.

• The goal-setting process including how to shape and communicate what is expected (results), how to do it (behaviors) and improvement plans (individual development).
• How to help people find real meaning and value in their work to encourage peak performance.
