Are you an effective team leader?
Operating your own business and also controlling the staff, is often compared to being like the conductor of an orchestra – everyone is playing their part, however sometimes the musicians are not keeping up to the beat, and the music sounds out of tune! Who is to blame – usually it is the Conductor – not the Musicians?
Are you Spending Too Much Time on Staff Issues?
Spending too much time solving staff issues, instead of being able to concentrate on improving and growing your business and your profits? Many owners and managers find that successfully managing staff can be one of the most frustrating part of running a business.
Are you managing your staff, or are they Managing You?
As a business owner or manager, your major challenge is get you and your staff to play “the same sweet music”. In order to achieve this you need to ensure that your “players” are happy and motivated, as well as competent and well trained, so that you can all operate effectively as a team.
Staff Turnover – a wasted growth opportunity
Have you had to terminate the employment of a staff member because they were not performing their job well enough?
Do you have members of your staff choosing to leave your employ?
Pay or salary issues are rarely the real reason why people leave their jobs – often it is just because of poor staff management by their manager.
Each time you lose a staff member the costs of replacement and the time taken to train the new person impacts on the quality of your business, as well as your profits.
Is Your Business a Great Place to Work at?
As a business manager, you need to know the factors that impact on staff turnover rates, and understand what motivates your staff and affects their productivity.
