Why Is It So Hard To Find Employees Right Now

We sat down for an impromptu Happy Hour last week with a handful of our local clients.  The topic we thought was most relevant was “how do we manage material delays and price increases?”

After some BIG Wins (we always start meetups with BIG Wins), we then lobbed the topic for discussion.  Within five minutes, all of our business owner clients were knee-deep in conversation about a different challenge… employees.

We started to slowly guide them back to our selected topic, and again within another five minutes, they were shifted back to deep discussion about… employees.

It’s true, the number one challenge most business owners deal with…employees.

How Healthy Is Your Business?

Who Holds YOU Accountable?

Who holds you accountable? To your standards, your goals, your vision?

Meeting with businesses can be a roller coaster. There are hundreds, if not thousands of variables at play every single day! So how do you navigate those? How do you work through those? How do you make sure you put the work in to build a business that matters?

What I see, more often than not, is that most of us don’t have a plan so we’re stuck in the same place spinning our wheels.

About a year ago, I was meeting with a heroic business owner and we spent a little over an hour talking about their business. The highs, the lows, the wins and the struggles. All of it.

He even had a plan for all of the stuff he wanted to develop in his team.
