when become a leader, say the dateline is a week after this, at 3pm by 11/7 , instead of saying i want it by today.Yet the next morning u dont want this, i want the other way round. so disscuss early with ur employee.
second motivate them to perform well. praise a good work!
third guide ur employee to get things done.ask for discussion, two heads is better than one.
forth, be clear about what u want to achieve.. and a little more explanation.. emel, sms or etc
fifth, give some bonus . if you r gaining profit..
