Set Expectations Today, Avoid Problems Tomorrow

When I started talking about outsourcing a few years back, I also created a video series of outsourcing tips. I did it because I wanted everyone to have a great experience in outsourcing. Things were different back then. Most businesses had no idea what outsourcing was or how they could use it for their business. So now I’m bringing them back with new information I’ve learned over the years and new resources I’ve developed with my team.

In this video, I want to shed light on the importance of setting one’s expectations. It’s important that on the get-go, you let them know the work you expect from them AND that they can talk to you if they run into any problems.

Tip #2 – Setting Expectations

That’s the second tip I’m sharing — setting expectations. Without clear expectations in place, you could be setting yourself up for inevitable issues down the road. Whether it’s about their salary or what working with you entails, you have to set the record straight and let them know what to expect.

It is important that they know what to expect from you especially when they’re stuck. Why? I’ll talk about that in this video, so you better don’t miss it.

And in case you missed it, check out my first video where I talk about daily communication.
