Peter and Dan discuss one of the biggest problems with the hiring process: most of the time, a job description doesn’t provide enough information to create a successful relationship between an employer and a new employee. In Episode 67, they shared best practices within their own companies; in this follow-up episode, Peter and Dan discuss a specific agreement that communicates expectations to a new team member.
In this episode:
- Dan explains his dislike of team management meetings and why he developed a new tool called the 4×4. This thinking process helps you clarify and then communicate your expectations to team members.
- Peter talks about the importance of ensuring his team loves what they are doing and feels fulfilled, while still providing the support needed to meet company objectives.
- Dan shares a successful example of hiring a recent employee with a 4×4, and discusses how your organization can use this upfront communication tool for better results.
