job priorities while neglecting others; and/or hesitate, complain or
refuse to accept new procedures or assignments.

roles, responsibilities and performance standards/expectations and
provides ongoing feedback and support as employees strive to achieve
expectations. Engages in two-way conversations throughout the year
that ensure an up-to-date understanding of expectations, performance
gaps and actions required to close any gaps. This is quite different
from failing to adequately communicate expectations, being unaware of
(or choosing to ignore) performance gaps, providing little or no
support in overcoming barriers and failing to provide regular, ongoing
feedback to employees.

motivation among team members. Assesses and communicates progress on

manner. This is quite different from those leaders who pay little
attention to team morale and fail to take steps that would positively
affect motivation levels.

combine these with knowledge of the industry, market and organization
