"My Clock - Your Clock - Their Clock"

By: JD McKay 



As you review, each of the following good and bad clock traits

have a pen or pencil handy and jot down the name

or names of co-workers that come to mind. 


 Enjoy the new view of My Clock, Your Clock, Their Clock.


Also, be aware that each good VS bad clock trait has a value which

represents the opposite ends of a scale -10 through -01, to zero,

and then on through +01 through +10. Therefore, you might

observe and rate Mary as +09 on the #11 A/B clock trait,

and you may feel Bob, is currently a -10 on the #41 A/B clock trait, and so on.

Once you do this work and evaluate the individual's scores, trait by trait,

you will be able to identify, confirm, educate, attitude adjust, motivate,

and plan to reward or further develop your winning team.
