Motivate through Engagement

The benefits to having a motivated team are enormous. Someone who will go above and beyond might be particularly critical in a small company where you need everyone to contribute. Employees who put in extra effort for your company can make a huge difference to the success of your company. In addition, engaged employees are usually happier, healthier and more fulfilled, which means they’re likely to stay with your company longer. And while they’re working for you they’re likely to be off sick…See More

Check And Update Your SMART Goals

Goals should not be set in stone. Periodically check what goals you are working towards, and update them whenever required. If something changes in your business (or life), don’t forget to update any related goals to make sure they are still relevant. Periodically check that all the goals your team are working towards are the right ones to move your business forwards. If any of their goals need updating, then update them. Drop goals that are no longer relevant at all, and write new relevant…See More

Is It Too Late Once Someone’s Gone?

Exit interviews are a great way to unearth trends that might otherwise go unnoticed. Consider this example where three of your team have quit in the past few months. Let’s look at each scenario in turn: Jane, one of your best employees has just handed in her resignation. You have a chat with her to see if you can get her to change her mind. You really don’t want her to leave. She says it’s not about money, she’s just found something else she’s more interested in. It’s clear she’s made her mind…See More

Hire People Who Are The Right Fit For An Easier Life

Make sure the people you hire and work with are the right fit for your company. It makes life so much easier and less stressful if the people you work with share the same values and are all pulling in the same direction. On top of that, each time you recruit and hire someone it costs you and your company time and money, so if you hire someone who is not the right fit, and they leave, it will cost you time and money to repeat the recruitment process and hire a replacement. If they don’t leave,…See More
