How to give employee feedback

You want your business to be the best. That means getting the best from every employee and ensuring they all work towards the same common goal of taking your company to the next level.

As a UK Certified EOS Implementer, I’m often asked the same question: how do I ensure my employees are motivated and efficient. I believe it is one of our most important jobs as leaders and managers.

People want feedback, they want to do a good job, to know it, and to be recognised and rewarded when they do.

The fourth leadership ability: systemising

Growing a business requires a specific set of leadership abilities. You need to manage the day-to-day while helping your team to execute better and be more efficient.

The key to successful business development lies in focusing on your main goals and then optimising your company’s routine in order to achieve those aims.

Signs your business growth is slowing

Businesses never grow in a straight line, they generally thrive and grow then “hit a ceiling” when they reach a period of slowdown or growing pains.

When this happens, business leaders often feel they’re stuck in a rut or overwhelmed and frustrated with daily operations.

Five leadership abilities for business growth

These five essential leadership abilities will help you break through the ceiling and get back on track:

How to manage millennials

There is a lot of noise around at the moment about how to manage millennials.

But what exactly is a millennial? When I canvassed the team in the office, the one person we thought was a millennial – our office assistant – did not identify as one.

She described them as “following the latest trend”, “high maintenance”, “seeking approval through social media” and “shallow.”

She felt that they are afraid of showing who they really are, being themselves and it’s hard to have a genuine conversation about things that matter with them.

Although she is officially a millennial (Wikipedia defines them as having been born between 1981 to 1996 – 22 to 37 year olds), she believes it’s become more a description of a type of person than simply being defined by the dates you were born.
