There are three initial questions you’ll need to ask yourself:
- How does your business make a difference?
- How do you do it differently than your competition?
- On your best day, what do you love about your job and what do you think your employees love about their job?
Secondly: Does your team know your purpose? If you could have one team, one core, driving passion and one customer experience, what would it be?
These soul-searching exercises can be uncomfortable, but result in big, bold, exciting results, especially in workshops, leadership development sessions and team retreats.
Third: Does your team understand your direction, message and purpose? How do you set yourself apart from your competition?
If you can’t answer these questions, we absolutely should talk. If you can answer these questions, congratulations! How do you know, though, that what you’re thinking is what your team are thinking? There are many issues, concerns and questions team members have, that they’re nervous to openly broach to senior management.
Final question: Are you ready to grow your business?
