I used to think that hiring the right people was the key to building strong teams. After all, if you ask the right questions, make sure the person has the right qualifications, education, and experience, it will all work out, or so I thought.
Time and again, I witnessed failure with this approach. The employees that I had such high hopes for turned out to be disappointments. What was missing? That’s not to say that hiring the right people is wrong; it’s not, but it’s only the first step.
That’s when I realized that the next step, “What’s next?” was finding a way to build up what is strong in those employees. I had to give them a chance to develop into the team members that I saw in the interviews. Each one of them has unique gifts just waiting to be developed.
We have worked with hundreds of business owners and corporations and this dilemma is a common thread in most of those companies. Employees, your team, can disappoint, frustrate, and baffle you, or they can amaze you with their creativity, perseverance, and dedication to the success of your business and your customers.
What is your reality?
When you think about your employees, are you spending far too much time on personnel issues and the drama that goes with it? Are you experiencing high turnover? Do you feel like you are the only one that really cares about the business? Do you feel overwhelmed with the day-to-day management and rarely have time to work on the business?
Imagine a team that cares about your business like you do. They understand what it takes to be successful, and they consistently show up ready to be part of the solution. When you build what is strong in your people, they will respond. You can:
• Experience lower employee turnover
• Create higher customer satisfaction
• Realize increased bottom line profits
