Every team member within our teams and organizations deserves to have a clear understanding of expected performance standards. It should not be a surprise or a shock. Workers cannot be held accountable for expectations and goals that have not been clearly discussed, communicated, and documented.
Even more important is having a fair opportunity to excel – equally for all despite ethnicity, culture, race, or experience. A fair opportunity, measurable and achievable within each assigned role. A reasonable expectation is that all will equally be recognized for their efforts, creativity, and excellence.
Inclusion and equity should be only for a chosen few.
