If you want to take your operation to the next level of success, show your employees the financial impact of their actions, says Jorge Estrada, of Leadership Coaching International. When you show employees the financial impact of the decisions they make, it helps them understand why on-farm protocols were established — and the importance of following them every day. 

When employees see the cost of losing a calf or what happens when a ration is not mixed properly, it can be a real eye opener, he says.
