What if you walked around the company you worked at and went to someone and asked, “What would it take tomorrow to get you fired?”
I just saw that question asked in this awesome video by Jerry Colonna:
Chances are people don’t really know what it takes to get fired. What he argues is that if people don’t really know what it takes to get fired, then they don’t really know if they are actually doing a good job. Putting some transparency around what defines success and failure can take a lot of stress out of people’s time at work.
