When you institute a new policy or issue important instructions, do you put teeth into your words?

A king ordered, "I issued a decree that any man who violates this edict, a timber shall be drawn from his house and he shall be impaled on it" (Ezra 6:11 NASB).

Just because management issues instructions or establishes a new policy, we can't assume everyone will jump on our bandwagon immediately. While I don't suggest impaling people who fail to adhere to directives, consequences need to be established. Violations of credit policy or lowered customer service levels are serious. Staff need to know the rules. Putting teeth into your key directives will strengthen your leadership
