Employee systems are great--they provide consistency and guidance for your staff. And it gets a whole bunch of stuff off your shoulders. But systems alone won't create a loyal workforce, will it? And if not, what will?
"Mentoring," argues Jonathan Raymond, former E-Myth CEO and founder of Refound, a management and leadership training company. On this episode, Jonathan explores how to find and keep good people, and even implement systems to replace them easily as they move on.
Why Add Mentoring to Your Employee Systems …
Aim for 1 business day feedback to and from your employees. Gone are the days of one-way communication and barking orders. Ask: how do they feel about the work they're doing? What in the process needs changing--for the company's sake, and theirs? Free-flowing communication builds trust.
Lead by example. Hold yourself accountable to the standards you set. This creates a strong foundation on which you build your other business systems.
