What is right for my business or my team? Perhaps you were just
about to ring a client, email a supplier or finish a report but, would it hurt
to stop and listen to your staff instead? Staff turnover and succession
planning so often get ignored in the bigger picture.
I understand that you have to run the business in order to employ people, but you also started this business for a reason.
What was it and is it still relevant? Can you click off the monitor, take a walk around the
office and listen to the people around you? Why did you hire them? What benefit
are they to the business? Are they receiving a genuine return in kind apart
from a salary? Are they engaged and if not, why not and how will that impact
you? What thoughts do they have and what interviews with other businesses are they considering
Worth a break? I think so….
