Hey, y’all! Brent Perry with Business on Purpose.
Do they know…who are they?
And what do they need to know?
Let’s talk about your employees. Basically, we want to know if your employees know what is in your head. Or a better question, are you on the same page?
I just finished a call with a client of mine (he’s a builder), and for the first time since we have been working together, we got his project manager on the call with us. Not the first time I have heard about him, but the first he was able to join us.
I have heard about him…a lot. I have written his name down in my coaching notes…a lot. I have taken calls from my client about this PM…a lot.
By now you can see where I am going with this.
My client is good at what he does. This project manager is good at what he does. But there was something off in their relationship.
If you're looking for more resources to work ON your business, we have them.
The work being done was inefficient. They were slow to complete jobs. A job or two had to be revisited because of some simple oversights. The amount of trips to Lowe’s, simply baffling.
Again, they know what they are doing. But these misses were costing the company time and money. So the question we had to answer, what do we do?
After we chatted for a bit, it became clear…these two were not on the same page.
Now, if this story sounds familiar at all, it’s because at some time or another you as a business owner have probably felt this way. Actually, it would be hard to imagine if you haven’t felt this way. You have been there.
If you have been listening to Business on Purpose (via your coaches, podcasts, youtube, etc.) you have heard us say that 2022 is going to be a year of flourishing.
Part of flourishing is being on the same page with your people. It is essential to your business. It is essential to you.
This client is indeed going to flourish in 2022! And for this to happen, he and his project manager need…no have to be on the same page. So where did we point him?
The first…vision! You must be able to communicate the vision of your business with your employees.
How do you do that?
Simple, weekly team meetings. They are essential.
A few excuses I have heard over the past few weeks from business owners when asked about why they haven’t been doing team meetings…
- I don’t have the time
- My employers won’t show up
- They don’t seem to be effective
Let me stop us there. If you are running a weekly / effective team meeting…these excuses don’t even make sense. We would love to help you. We would love your feedback. We would love for you to be doing team meetings in 2022.
You will not regret it.
Thanks for listening.
