If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, there’s a good chance you’ve heard me talk about the 5 Ps of Business. These pillars — Promise, Product, Process, People, & Profit — are all essential to success.
But without one of them, your entire foundation crumbles.
People can make or break your operation from both sides. The people you work with, your team, determine how great your business can be. And the people who buy from you, your customers or clients, are who keeps your brand going.
Often, business owners focus all their energy on nurturing their relationships with their consumers. But just as, if not more important, is the energy you put into your own colleagues or employees.
With just a few key strategies, you can change your team from something that adds stress to your plate, into something that takes stress off your shoulders. Let’s dive into how.
The Great Resignation
Alright, let’s bring out the elephant in the room.
Unless you’ve taken up residence under a rock, there’s a good chance you’ve heard that people are quitting their jobs at very high rates these days.
But instead of seeing these resignations as an issue, why not see them as an opportunity?
If you have everything in alignment with your business and you’re proud of the way you manage, then this is a golden opportunity to snag the best people to come work for you. Now, more than ever, you can attract the perfect fits for your team’s culture.
When you do this, it makes a big difference: not only to the way your team interacts amongst themselves, but also to the experience your team is able to give customers. When you’ve got a great team, every aspect of your business is more enjoyable.
Here’s how to make that happen.
Managing a team can be a headache, or it can be incredibly exciting. Some days, it’s a little bit of both.
