Scaling any business takes planning. To scale your business successfully, you need a consistently productive and engaged team. No business can scale without a high-performing team.
Without any tools, keeping yourself and your team engaged is tricky. Additionally, as you hire and train your staff, your role as the leader also changes. To be successful in scaling your business, you will need to let go of the daily duties and focus on the strategic ones. This means that you shift from doing tasks yourself to accomplishing your goals with and through others.
It’s also your responsibility to build a workplace where your team can thrive. For many leaders, it can be a guessing game in how to keep employees engaged.
To take the guesswork out and add science into team engagement, I use AcuMax Index® to show my clients ways to open the door to a real-world understanding of their associates. For more information on AcuMax Index, visit http://www.excellerateassociates.com/hardwiring.
This tool allows leaders and their teams to quickly relate to one another in ways that might otherwise take years to accomplish. In one case, one of my new clients discovered an employee was de-energized.
It didn’t mean the employee disliked his job. His Index showed that he was just bored. Instead of the business owner guessing, he now can have an insightful discussion with his employee on career planning.
As he strategically scales his business, he can keep in mind opportunities to keep this employee consistently engaged. Understanding how people are wired helps you as the leader align people and positions, enhances idea flow, improves communication, increases productivity and enriches decision making.
