Episode 46: Get More From Your Team Using These Two Rules.

Have you ever been crystal clear with your team only to find they still end up getting it wrong?

It’s unbelievably frustrating.

Because now you have to stop what you were doing, explain to them what they did wrong, and fix the mistake.

Then there’s the salt in the wound… the cost of the mistake, not just cash, but time… and that’s probably worse.

Well the bad news doesn’t stop there unfortunately, here’s the real slap in the face…

You were not crystal clear.

It might have been clear to you, but it was not clear to your team.

Why?

Because you have a set of standards, or expectations that you hold yourself to.

Meaning you do certain things subconsciously when carrying out tasks.

You measure twice, you test, you know the best tool to use, you know what material should be used, you clean up after yourself.

Was any of that in your “crystal clear” instructions?

Probably not.

And when almost all difficulties in business are a result of unmet expectations…

It’s important your crew knows;

  • What success in their role looks like,
  • Why standards are important for achieving a common goal,
  • And how they could improve to better meet expectations.

Once you’re doing that, you’ll be getting the best out of your team.

All without having to spend each and every moment looking over their shoulder.

And you can do all those things by adding these two pillars to your team’s culture.

Listen in and you’ll learn how to extract any desired behavior or result from your team.

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

  • An ability to extract any behavior or result from your team
  • A method to lift the standards in your business without having to police everything
  • Maximum productivity from your team
