Follow Ups Management
Follow-up is a mantra amongst Team, Management, and Leadership Development everywhere. While we all talk about how important it is, many of us don’t do it. We confuse following-up with negative terms of management – Micro-Managing; NOT trusting people; Causing people to be Other-Directed; Dis-Engagement… The stories we tell ourselves about follow-up are lies we believe. Follow-up is about showing that the task is important and allows the manager to predict better the work-flow and longer goals that keep the company and team working. You need to know if people are doing what they are supposed to be doing and, if they are not, what can you do about it.
