I have devoted my governance tips this summer to talking about compliance. I have designed an acronym to help us achieve the goals that have been set by our organizations. The acronym is COMPLY. I have already talked about:
C= communicate the policies,
O= observe behaviour to determine compliance.
M= measure the compliance.
P= prevent misbehaviour or provide penalties for bad behaviour.
L= leadership also known as tone at the top
This week I am talking about Y =you.
There are not a lot of words that start with Y.
What can you do to improve compliance? Everyone in an organization needs to follow the policies and the procedures. Each person has an opportunity to show the others that they honor the goals of the organization by following the rules. You can make a difference.
Y can also stand for YAY! We are doing all we can to follow the rules, to make our organization successful. Good for us.
