The Pathway to Building Winning Teams

blog Mar 16, 2021

Like most leaders and managers of teams, you have probably found yourself in a place where you had had success in building your team, you have found great people, you have kept great people.

 

Yet, at a certain point, things weren’t all working as well as you liked with your employees.

 

Perhaps you realised your latest hire wasn’t ideal, or you were getting attitude from one of the team, they just didn’t seem to be doing what you expected, or you needed to exit someone but the thought of having to do that was less than comfortable.

 

The first thing you need to know is that it is totally normal, and there are always going to be points as you grow your business where things get a little wobbly in certain parts, despite the fact that you have other elements of your team running along seamlessly.

 

I don’t need to tell you what you already know, and that is that you can’t build a business that delivers you success and results (whatever...

Be courageous – prioritise your self care to see your team's performance soar!

blog Mar 10, 2021

Let me ask you a question…. As the business owner, leader, manager, the head honcho, how important is ‘self-care’ to you? In fact, what does self-care even mean to you?

Why am I asking you this? And what on earth does this have to do with your team and your business success?

Well I wanted to let you in on a little background and share my experience in realising just how important this is to our success as business owners. I wanted to share this with you because I was there, I was doing all of the things, all of the time and thought I was smashing it! I had it totally under control and was moving forward and building my empire (yes literally that was my mantra, I’m not even joking).

But do you know what, I was on the fast train towards burnout and I couldn’t see it, and in fact it took one of my team to not so subtly let me know that I wasn’t being the best leader, manager or business owner I could be.

Was my business successful at the time?...

5 Sure Signs Your Employee Has Checked Out

blog Mar 03, 2021

Ever been in a situation where you felt completely blindsided by an employee resigning?

Perhaps you’ve been frustrated because they had ample opportunity to talk to you about whatever was going on and they didn’t.

Maybe despite not seeing it coming you’re quietly relieved because, let’s face it, they haven’t been a stellar team member for the last little while.

There is even a chance that you are not so quietly relieved because this employee has been keeping you up at night, you’ve been avoiding having one of those conversations with them and their resignation has just got you out of it….

Whatever the case we have all been there, where a resignation landed on our desk that we didn’t see coming. But could we have? Could we have seen the signs, and known that this was inevitable? Or could we have seen the signs and put in place strategies to reverse what was going on so we could retain this once high performing and well liked member of...

Why Avoiding These Conversations is Bad for Business
26:40
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 51 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
In today's episode we are talking about why avoiding those conversations is actually bad for your business.
 
You know the conversations I mean, the one where you get a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, the ones which give you heart palpitations at the thought of having them, that keep you up at night.
 
Whether it’s a performance management issue, a change in the business, a termination or anything else that is going to be a tough conversation with our team, we’ve all been in a situation where we have avoided them.
 
However, avoiding those conversations in bad for business in many ways, which we unpack in this episode, and I also share with you a simple framework to follow next time you need to tackle a tough conversation with a team member.
 
As promised, you can get your free guide to tackling tough conversations here:

Why avoiding difficult conversations is bad for business

blog Feb 24, 2021

This is one of the topics I most often get asked about.

I see business owners, leaders and managers struggling with this one all the time: tackling difficult conversations with staff. Usually this comes after a period of avoiding that difficult conversation which is what we’re going to spend a bit of time today looking at in depth.

If you’re anything like me, conflict is not something you run headfirst toward with arms wide open to embrace - that’s exactly why tough conversations are hard. That dreaded feeling in the pit of your stomach, sleepless nights, anxiety, avoiding the staff member and putting off THAT conversation, if not avoiding it entirely.

You are absolutely not alone.

Even with my experience, I don’t like having these conversations either. I never have, and while I’m definitely better at tackling these tough conversations, it doesn’t mean I like it any more than I did before - I just developed the skills to get better at having...

Create Robust KPIs To Boost Productivity

blog Feb 17, 2021

"If it can not be measured it can not be managed" - Peter Drucker

When was the last time you contemplated creating KPIs for your team?

KPI's, Key Performance Indicators, Key Success Criteria or any other term you would like to use are essential to drive employee performance, productivity and engagement.

Too often this task lands firmly in the 'too hard basket' because let's be honest it's not the easiest task to do.

Done poorly, creating KPIs are an utter waste of time. For many of you who have been in the position where you have been allocated or managed staff with ineffective KPI's, this will have undoubtedly influenced your desire to develop better targets for your future teams.

If this sounds like you, I am going to challenge you to rethink your approach today. I am challenging you to set just 1 KPI for each role over the next week, and 3 big ones for your business or team.

Why?

Our team members fundamentally want to know 3 key things from their leaders:
1) What do we expect...
