Remember when you were in grammar school and everyone warned you about the dangers of peer pressure? What would you say if I told you peer pressure was the solution? Because it is.
If you want to get the most from your employees, they’re going to need accountability partners. These are people who they’ll share their goals with, report their progress to and receive advice from. It can be a fellow coworker or an entire team. What matters is that the partners act as coaches, ready to push but also encourage.
Tell your employees to meet with their partner or partners every day, preferably in the morning. They should share their daily goals but also their larger ones. Being publicly held accountable by their peers will incentivize your employees to follow through on their assignments. Even go above and beyond.
So the next time you hear someone say peer pressure is bad, you can introduce them to your super productive team.
