IBGR.Network - PROFIT Radio. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. Grow With Us.
Why are you in business? This is a question my mentor asked me years ago. My answer was to design the life I want, his answer was you are in business to attain clients and from there retain. At every level of our business you deal with people, both internally and externally.
In order to scale your Business your next step is to build your team and find the right people in the right seats. Once you have established processes and structures you are now working towards this becoming a strong partnership where your people get to not only perform their roles but also to contribute and exceed in their performance.
The key is to understand first what you need followed by understanding each individual's greatness and allowing them to operate from their strengths. As a business owner, entrepreneur or manager you carry the responsibility to elevate your people. To achieve this you continue to Invest in your people. People can be the best marketing communication source and cheerleaders. On the flipside it can turn the opposite way and potentially bring havoc to your business.
CFO asks CEO: What happens if we invest in developing our people and then they leave?
CEO: What happens if we don’t and then they stay?
Show Objectives - The Why
The objective for today’s episode is to explore why it is important to be diligent when inviting new team members into your business. Every new employee brings about change, either positive and/or negative and a great deal depends on how we recruit, the thoroughness, how we onboard as well as what processes do we have in place to set the new team member up for success.
It is a process that requires clarity and good execution as without it it can be a costly exercise and have a huge impact on the entire business, internally morale and externally affecting the customer experience. Why people stay is when they are engaged, connected and clear on where they are going. Why is this important? If your team is engaged and clear it is more likely they will support your vision and when required put in the extra mile.
