Today’s tip comes from Dan Rosensweig, president and CEO of Chegg, an online textbook rental company: 

Create a culture where the best performers don’t have to work hard to let you know they are performing well.
We spend a lot of time in all of the companies that I run or work in making sure we know who the star performers are, rather than forcing them to send an e-mail or come see you or brag about themselves, which they are really uncomfortable doing.
I call them.
I’ve learned that they appreciate it because they then can focus on doing the job and not worry about whether people are noticing.
–Dan Rosensweig, President and CEO, Chegg
