Ongoing employee training should ALWAYS be a priority no matter how the economy is doing or what daily crisis the news or political parties keep peddling nonstop in attempts to get our attention, distract us, and divide us.
NOT EVERYONE GETS AN AWARD
Business is tough, especially if you run or are part of a small or mid-sized firm. Big business clearly showed the past few years that they operate and play by a very different set of rules in relation to finance, lobbying, hiring, and social media influence. This is now easy and obvious to see.
A SHIFT IN PERSPECTIVE
My top clients understand this long before they hire me that if their mindset and culture is too comfortable with the status quo, too risk-adverse, and not willing to truly innovate and try new ideas, that I will refuse to take the assignment.
THE GIFT OF WISDOM
Why? I value my time at this stage of being in the marketing and sales arena for 30+ years and want to only work with committed organizations, leaders, and teams these days, not hobbyists.
The way I see it trending and with a sure to be bizarre and noisy Presidential election in ’24, the choice is clear for any company or nonprofit organization: Upgrade or stagnate? Choose wisely.
Adapt. Improvise. Overcome.
Excuses are still running rampant with far too many companies three years after the pandemic in relation to hiring and retaining key employees.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BUSINESS OWNERS:
Top talent is drawn to authentic leadership and companies that invest in their people on a CONSISTENT basis, no matter how the economy is doing.
They seek inspired leaders, not tired, excuse-making leaders who continue to kick employee-related issues down the road year after year while top talent continues to leave and go to where they are listened to, valued, and appreciated.
IS YOUR COMPANY UNINSPIRING? BORING?
Sadly, far too many companies still don’t understand or get this. Their culture and leadership matters. Yes, some employees do give a damn and they want to be heard. To be seen. To have a voice.
AGAIN THE QUESTION TO CONSIDER:
Upgrade or stagnate? Choose wisely.
