In today’s fast-paced business environment, managers need only not to focus on what they have to do but also on how they have to think. Having the right mindset is key to success in any trade industry. The right attitude for success will grow your business in strength and size.
A motivated employee is a valuable employee - and among the hardest to find. No matter the size of your trades business, its important for all managers to motivate and engage their employees. By empowering your team to succeed in their roles - both on and off the tools - you can create a sense of ownership that will drive greater efforts to deliver quality output and customer service, while impacting positively on retention rates, staff morale and increased financial performance.
Collaboration is the lifeblood of successful businesses. Looking at some of the world’s leading brands - Virgin, Apple, and Nike - much of their success is attributed to how well they have been able to collaborate. Richard Branson credits collaboration to his early success, stating ‘it was the people I surrounded myself with who made the difference: if you treat your employees right, they will treat your customers right, and sustained profits will follow.’ Effective collaboration will challenge your habits, ideas, goals, and direction in which to grow.
