Be a Great Leader - Reveal How You're Assessed
Do you have the psychological fortitude to be a great leader? To find out, ask yourself this simple question: Would you be comfortable making your personal performance evaluation known to peers and subordinates?
It might be awkward at first. But after a while, open communication about your performance criteria can lead your team in the right direction, strengthen it, and inspire its members to strive for similar goals.
This transparency starts right at the top of the company with the CEO. Case in point: More and more boards of directors are detailing the criteria behind their chief execs' compensation in terms that go beyond traditional financial figures, using such measures as customer satisfaction, employee engagement, brand equity, or leadership development.
