FREE MANAGEMENT TIPS NO. 7: Make your employees your most valuable asset

The opposite will be true if you are treated poorly and made to feel like your custom doesn’t matter. The key to this is called ‘employee engagement’ which we look at in this video.

FREE MANAGEMENT TIPS NO. 10: Be performance WISE as a leader

People don’t come to work to intentionally screw up! When people don’t perform its easy to think they are the problem. This is seldom true in my experience. Most people want to do a decent day’s work for a decent day’s pay and feel some satisfaction for what they have achieved. They certainly don’t want to feel they have fallen short of expectations. In this video we look at a method to understand where performance issues may stem from, how to analyse and correct them. It’s called the WISE model which has proven to improve individual, team and business performance. Increased profits, reduced costs and improved quality have all been outcomes of applying this technique.
