IBGR - RESULTS Radio Network. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. Come grow with us.
People are the powerhouse behind everything, they are an intrinsic part of your business, and your everyday life. If you can't engage and work with them in a mutually beneficial style then everything suffers.
I passionately believe in not only ensuring your people are engaged, but in putting people at the centre of the work equation. Whilst the business, or product, or service, is still vitally important, it is the people that will ultimately make or break your company's success.
Many Business owners forget this, and get too heavily involved in metrics, ignoring the empathetic leadership that is needed to build a successful company culture.

Work gets done through people and highly engaged employees result in lower turnover, higher morale, increased productivity and enhanced business results. This is what you want to achieve.
Some businesses, once they have achieved robust systems and processes for identifying mismatches early which are firmly in place, then take the step to build a safety mechanism for continual review, sort of a resilience nerve center, audit review, or risk management process. This allows them to ensure the key aspects of identifying mismatches early, in both people and process are continually reviewed and don't get forgotten.
