Culture, Employee Engagement, Leadership, Productivity, Success

Employee engagement indicates how happy/content employees are in their jobs.  It goes beyond activities, games, and events.  Engaged employees see the whole company and understands their purpose/vision.  They also know exactly where and how they fit in.

When a company has employees who are engaged appropriately, they get the following:

– High levels of productivity
– Better retention rates
– Better decision making
– Increased sense of health and well-being
– Decreased healthcare costs
– Boost to their bottom line

Having engaged employees lead to a great company culture, which can be a powerful way of transforming an organization.

Employers should make sure their employees:

– Feel that their work is meaningful and makes a difference
– Feel valued, trusted, and respected
– Feel secure and self-confident

An effective engagement strategy and a highly engaged workforce is more likely to retain top performers and attract new talent.  This leads to a more successful organization!

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s important to start thinking about your holiday marketing plan now.  Here are some tips that may help make this holiday season a more profitable one for your business:

  1. Start a seasonal campaign before everyone else does.  Avoid fighting all the noise.  Get your plan ready to launch before everyone is expecting it.
  2. Don’t reinvent the wheel.  Use holiday marketing materials/ideas from past successful years.  Save the content and reuse it again next year.
  3. Change images and marketing content on your website to promote seasonal events or upcoming holidays.  Add snowflakes or fall foliage to enhance your online presence.
  4. Try to customize your services/products to what your customers need.  Provide these based on the current season or upcoming holiday.  This helps you leverage those limited customer needs that may only come around once a year.
  5. Create a strategy early, to plan out holiday discounts, or create free giveaways to kick off the new year.  These seasonal plans boost sales and are great for business.
  6. Set time aside to start sending personal holiday notes to your customers/clients.  Take this opportunity to connect with your audience so you are at the top of their mind this holiday season.

It’s important to set goals for your business.  When you have well-defined goals, they will help your business grow, help you achieve your objectives, improve teamwork, improve collaboration, and help everyone understand the direction your business in heading towards.

Remember to set SMART goals:

– Specific
– Measurable
– Achievable
– Relevant
– Timely

Here are some tips to help you establish and reach your goals:

Create a clear statement for your purpose. Clear mental images help you see through any setbacks that may come along.

Make sure you consistently go over your goals (monthly, quarterly, or annually).  This helps you keep them relevant and achievable.

Take action.  Be sure to fit the type of action to the scope of each problem.  Some problems may require a longer detailed plan of action.

Keep yourself scheduled, but stick to it.  Use a calendar app to help you, and you’ll see your productivity level rise.

Remember that not everything works out the way you want it to.  Don’t be afraid of failure.  Respond to challenges and opportunities positively and flexibly.

All business owners want their employees to love coming to work.  Employees should not dread their jobs every day.  They should find it very hard to leave, but that’s not always the case.  Most of this is because of workplace stress, created by leaders, co-workers, or challenging projects.  Company Culture should ease some of this stress because culture is supposed to sustain employee enthusiasm.

Here are some tips to help business owners build a great company culture:

1 – Hire only people who fit into the current company culture.  Many qualified individuals may have a solid performance, but if their attitude clashes with the company culture, it can be detrimental to the business.

2 – Make sure all employees are in line with the company’s values and mission.  Those who are passionate about what the company is doing, become more dedicated and strive harder to accomplish goals.

3 – Help the team members feel like they’re part of a team, not just an individual.  Individuals can break down during conflicts and become ineffective.  Team members work together and work best when they are feeding off each other.  Teams get things done!

4 – Allow all the team members to help in decision making.  If employees just go to work and do what they’re told, they are only helping someone else achieve their dream.  Involve all employees in making company decisions.  They want to have a voice that creates meaningful impact within the company.

Goal setting is critical for business owners.  If you’re trying to reach specific goals, you’ll need a plan to get there.  Don’t repeat the same ineffective activities that suck you into a downward spiral.

Here are some ideas to help you reach your goals:

  1. Write down your plan.  Goals are actually an action plan.  Create your action plan and fill in the blanks between point A and point Z.  It will force you to think in concrete terms.
  2. Make your plan measurable.  Break down your goals into small steps and make each deadline realistic.  It will then be easier to measure your progress.
  3. Be fully committed.  Take the time to develop your plan, knowing why every step is important to you.  Commit to seeing the goals through to completion.

Achieve success by clearly defining your business goals and make sure to plan for obstacles and prepare for change, and you’ll end up with a clearly defined purpose for your business and your team.

It’s very important for team members to learn how to embrace change in the workplace.  With technology and processes always changing, learning how to adapt to these challenges is critical to success.

Here are six ways to embrace change in the workplace:

1 – Stay open-minded and demonstrate flexibility.

2 – Showcase your skills to accommodate work demands.

3 – Be willing to adapt your work style in new and positive ways.

4 – Learn to communicate with your co-workers by changing your communication style.

5 – Approach challenges with fearlessness and drive.

6 – Stay positive and resist the urge to say “no.”

If employees can meet job challenges head-on, adapt their work styles, and see change as a growth opportunity, then companies will thrive.  They will not only be seen as a valuable team member, but their positive attitude and winning spirit will help play a role in the rise of their career.

Team leaders need to manage teams who have been brought together to focus on specific projects, due to their individual skill levels and expertise.  They must recognize the different contributions each team members brings, and allow all members to work out their differences. Team leaders need to lead their team towards a common goal.

Here are a few essentials a team leader must posses to lead a successful team:

  1. Team leaders must look ahead, for their teams and their companies.  They must set clear objectives and find the ideal team members with the right skills.
  2. Team leaders must develop cultures where ideas and arguments are accepted.  Team members should be allowed to have a significant impact on the team, with leaders recognizing qualified individuals for problem solving.
  3. Team leaders need to use conflicts as constructive criticism.  They need to be approachable, be prepared to listen, and know when to back off.
  4. Team leaders need to be involved.  They need to be sensitive to the pressure and the needs of their teams.  And they need to reward and recognize individual accomplishments.

Accountability, business coaching, Leadership, Success

Many business owners, or managers, support their teams, helping them hold each other accountable and to ultimately be a success.  But, what about holding ourselves accountable? When you hold yourself accountable, you have greater success in reaching, or exceeding, your goals.

1 – Write everything down.  This is especially helpful if you’re a visual person.  Make a to-do list, a list for short-term goals, a list for long-term goals, etc.  Look at them consistently and focus on one at a time.  Use sticky notes and put them in places where you’ll see them often throughout your workday.

2 – Reward your own accomplishments.  After completing a certain number of goals, or after reaching a specific milestone, reward yourself with a vacation, or just take some time off.

3 – Review your own performance.  It’s important to be honest with yourself.  You are responsible for your own success and/or failure.  Tell yourself when your performance is not up to par.  Own up to your lack of performance, and commit to making a change.

4 – Ask your team how you’re doing.  If your business has a strong company culture, employees will be honest with you when giving you feedback on your performance.  Your team should provide complete unbiased feedback.
