How to Increase ROI of your Employees: It could be that the business you created to give you the lifestyle you truly deserve may actually be keeping you trapped. Or perhaps, doing the opposite of what you hoped for.
Do you live in fear of key staff leaving the organisation? Or do you feel you cannot promote people due to the void they will leave in the main volume of your core work?
In this episode, Steve will explain how to get more out of your existing team. Find and promote the best employees to amplify the great work.
Like an orchestra tied together by sheet music and a conductor, your business functions generally on your organisation’s systems and guidance. With these working in harmony, you all can produce your best work.
Look for the best people or the best characteristics of your people within your organisation to document their jobs and functions. You are effectively getting them to write the music for your orchestra.
Create a standard on which you can rely to deliver a consistent outcome, regardless of which staff member is dealing with, whether for a client, any task or even with communication. In other words, always have your best practices documented.
Before promoting someone, ensure they can delegate their jobs effectively to others without you having to train them. You can then replicate the systems that have been efficient and leave them in place, therefore, leaving no work void.
If you have a small staff and are just starting with documentation, keep it simple. Documentation, video capture and task management apps are a good start. Record, pass on systems, and also keep track of them accordingly.
04:12 – 💬 Most small businesses are actually being used like an orchestra without any music whatsoever. So what we need to do is to figure out how actually to change that.
05:10 – 💬 Yes, you want to get somewhere new; you want to progress further and quicker and faster and all the rest of it. But we’ve got a baseline; that is certainly your business right now.
08:35 – 💬 You may also find people to document and create systems for everything, and they do. You realise these key people are surely amazing at what they do. They get it. You then go and promote them to the systems lead or the systems architect.
12:27 – 💬 If you get stuck into the improvement stage too early, then you waste all your time on improving one process, at the cost of everything else not being systemised’
