Task assignment as well as coordinating and controlling their execution are the fundamental and most general tasks of a manager. What to do and how to do it to make the process of tasks verification an objective assessment, not a source of unwanted stress?
Verification of assigned tasks must be planned in advance – the time, place, scope and aim of the control. Employees need to be informed about all of these elements before. Give them a chance to prepare for such verification.
Controlling tasks execution must be fully justified. Employer’s distrust towards employees does not say anything positive about the company, hence it is not recommended to cause unwanted unrest.
The tools used in the verification of the tasks assigned should be adjusted to the type of the tasks and to employees. An electronic planner or a team management application will be tolerated much better by employees than a piece of paper with tasks presented in points.
