A company is a team of people working together. The question is, “What are they working for?”
Every business owner would love knowing his or her team is working for the growth and enhancement of the company. Everyone has a position and a strategic role to play, whether it’s the bat boy or the captain.
Sometimes owners get caught up in the demands of running the business and aren’t able to express their gratitude as much as they would like. Team members may drift from working for growth and enhancement to simply working for the paycheck. The best companies are the ones where everyone feels valued and appreciated for what they contribute.
Here’s a question. How many owners keep a photo of their team on the wall in their office to remind them just what their company really is? If I had a boss that kept my photo on his or her wall I think I’d feel pretty special.
