Whether you’re delivering negative or positive feedback, don’t wait until performance reviews to hold someone accountable. At that point, your feedback is usually old news. Instead, inspire your employees with daily feedback, whether it’s on the phone, in the hallway or during a project status discussion. Vital factor meetings—where you’re discussing the company’s health—can also foster an environment that’s great for performance checkups.

Always be on the lookout for ways to proactively impassion your team. Accountability is the most underused manager’s tool, yet it’s likely the most important. By learning to let go of the reins a little bit and pass on responsibilities to your staff members, you will unlock in them the greatest power and potential of your business.
