Tips to Build a Great Company Culture

All business owners want their employees to love coming to work.  Employees should not dread their jobs every day.  They should find it very hard to leave, but that’s not always the case.  Most of this is because of workplace stress, created by leaders, co-workers, or challenging projects.  Company Culture should ease some of this stress because culture is supposed to sustain employee enthusiasm. Here are some tips to help business owners build a great company culture: 1 – Hire only people who fit into the current company culture.  Many qualified individuals may have a solid performance, but if their attitude clashes with the company culture, it can be detrimental to the business. 2 – Make sure all employees are in line with the company’s values and mission.  Those who are passionate about what the company is doing, become more dedicated and strive harder to accomplish goals. 3 – Help the team members feel like they’re part of a team, not just an individual.  Individuals can break down during conflicts and become ineffective.  Team members work together and work best when they are feeding off each other.  Teams get things done! 4 – Allow all the team members to help in decision making.  If employees just go to work and do what they’re told, they are only helping someone else achieve their dream.  Involve all employees in making company decisions.  They want to have a voice that creates meaningful impact within the company.   rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo

Achieving Your Goals

Goal setting is critical for business owners.  If you’re trying to reach specific goals, you’ll need a plan to get there.  Don’t repeat the same ineffective activities that suck you into a downward spiral. Here are some ideas to help you reach your goals:
  1. Write down your plan.  Goals are actually an action plan.  Create your action plan and fill in the blanks between point A and point Z.  It will force you to think in concrete terms.
  2. Make your plan measurable.  Break down your goals into small steps and make each deadline realistic.  It will then be easier to measure your progress.
  3. Be fully committed.  Take the time to develop your plan, knowing why every step is important to you.  Commit to seeing the goals through to completion.
Achieve success by clearly defining your business goals and make sure to plan for obstacles and prepare for change, and you’ll end up with a clearly defined purpose for your business and your team. rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo
