Episode 23: Create accountability and initiative in your team

There’s a number of reasons that a business won’t grow, sales, systems, marketing, but very rarely will a business put their own team under the microscope. A lot of responsibility lies with your team, or at least as much as you are willing to give them. But like most owners you try to do everything yourself because to be fair, you’re good at it, that’s why you got to owning a business. But what cost does that come at?

It’s understandable because you want to ensure a high level of quality, but if you’re trying to manage everything you’re robbing your team of the opportunity to grow and develop. It’s easy to think they can’t handle the responsibility because they always make mistakes, but as hard as it is to admit, that is often the fault of the owner. Employees don’t learn to problem solve unless you provide them with the environment to do so.

In this episode you’ll learn how to create a culture that encourages accountability and initiative from your team without you actually having to tell them or teach them the qualities. You’ll be able to unlock the true potential of your team, making them far less reliant on you. That is the real win as you spend less time answering questions, fixing mistakes, and putting out fires, so you can focus on business improvement… or even just putting your feet up for a few minutes.

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN FROM IMPLEMENTING TODAY’S PODCAST:

  • Create a culture that cultivates accountability and initiative
  • Make your team less reliant on you for small day to day decisions
  • Unlock your teams full potential allowing them to develop properly
