All managers want to hold their employees accountable for results, but few know how. Moving beyond the far-from-ideal annual performance review—which only evaluates what has already occurred, and not what the manager wants to achieve—Keeping Employees Accountable for Results contains checklists, how-tos, and other tools to manage performance on an ongoing basis. The book gives busy managers quick, step-by-step advice on:

  • Setting expectations
  • Monitoring progress
  • Giving feedback
  • Following through

Light on theory and heavy on practical application, Keeping Employees Accountable for Results gives time-pressed managers the proven, practical information they need to help their people accomplish more.
