If you are the owner or founder of a recruitment business, how do you develop your direct reports? It’s difficult to combine being the boss and a coach.
OK, so your business strategy shows where you’re going, why you’re going there and how you’re getting there. Its logical, stands up to challenge and motivates action … (No? You’re not alone)
But assuming yours does … why is it failing
Delivering on commitments is about integrity and character. It’s one of the signs of an effective leader. It builds trust and confidence.
But, it’s easy to let things slip. Especially if you are the boss and have no one to answer to.
We all worry about things. If you’re a recruitment business owner, I can probably have a decent guess at some of them 🤦🏼
You know it’s not helpful to fret. It doesn’t solve anything. Often it makes it worse.
But, that doesn’t stop you obsessing.
Depending on your point of view, the world seems to be in a negative spiral 🌀, the economy, cost of living, the earth, politics, royals etc etc.
Certainly, from the media’s point of view, there’s little else going on. But then they are literally paid 💰 to feed you the most dramatic, terrible news of the day, even if it’s detrimental to the bigger picture. Bad news sells, right.
It’s been at least 15 years since I first heard the words ‘the war for talent. Yet, it becomes ever more true by the year.
A lot of SME business owners don’t plan much for the future. They have plenty of big ideas that go around in their heads, but ultimately, they end up doing what they’ve always done.
