The secret is to do less and, again, systematize. Focus your team on the most important objectives for the year and set short term goals toward those objectives. Great companies conduct intentional and annual strategic planning sessions where key objectives are set. These companies then set goals and review their progress throughout the year.
Nothing is more frustrating than when people don’t follow through. Your managers spend their days checking work or doing the work your employees were supposed to do. They have to expend a lot of time and energy making sure it all gets done. Accountability starts with management. Great managers coach, inspire and create a culture of accountability.
You can systematize great management. It starts with training. Management training should include theory and practical advice. Companies need to add management systems that give managers time to think about the development of their employees.
MAKE IT HAPPEN
Real change comes from practicing new habits. If you are ready to start running your business:
1. Don’t invent from scratch
They say experience is the best teacher, but only fools learn from experience. Why invest your time figuring out how to create change or inventing new processes when someone else already has it figured out? People Centric has the experience and can find existing processes that will work best for your company.
2. Find some outside insight
You don’t know what you don’t know. Our team at People Centric will never tell you how to run your business, but we can share some powerful insights that help you find your best opportunities.
3. Get your team involved
