If you’re a business owner, a manager, supervisor or in any capacity have people reporting to you, your most important job is to get the most out of your employees.
I struggle with this concept daily – perhaps other leaders do too.
For example, as a business owner, I think its my job to service my customers, its my job to market the business, its my job to manage the operations of the business – AND IT IS. However, what’s the most important thing I could do to assure each part of my job is done and done well? Get the most out of my employees. If they do their jobs to the best of their abilities, my job as business owner practically takes care of itself.
Conversely, if I can’t get the most out of my employees – in other words if they aren’t motivated to do their best job every day – running the business is much harder. In fact, if I can’t get the most out of my employees, I cannot succeed in my job at all.
Are you getting the most out of your employees? What strategies do you use to motivate them to do their best every day?
