Look Back to Look Ahead
This is the time of year when we look back and assess….yields, machinery needs, soil fertility, livestock status, marketing results, profit and loss. We are so good at evaluating business production that we often forget to evaluate the people who do all of the work!
Many on the farm dread the word “evaluation,” believing it will be nothing but an “everything I’ve done wrong” session. Instead, a really good evaluation process can leave those involved feeling energized, respected and motivated. With a clear purpose to appreciate and improve, it’s good for the individuals and for the business.
