Tips & advice to help you improve your performance
On some of our courses, we often ask managers ‘How many of you have got people in your team who have the potential to produce better work than they are showing at the moment?’
Normally, every hand goes up.
There are many examples of teams who have co-operated on tasks to accomplish goals.
And co-operation has proved to be beneficial in many respects to achieve what couldn’t be achieved individually.
Company culture is one of those ethereal things that sometimes gets mentioned and then dropped as a topic because it’s too big or too vague.
And we can’t do much to influence it, so why spend time on it.
Here, we are referring to your Company values, also known as corporate values or core values.
These are the “fundamental beliefs upon which your business and its behaviour are based. They are the guiding principles that your business uses to manage its internal affairs as well as its relationship with customers”. (crewapp.com)
It’s often a fact that the very skills you have developed to get yourself to your current position in business may be the very skills and attributes that can hold your success back.
These might include having too high a dependence on your specialist expertise, an individualistic approach that differentiates you from your current peers, and possibly inclination to challenge the business status quo.
Imagine that the person you interviewed came across very well, their references were great and their CV covered everything you want in a new person for the role.
You offer them the job, they accept and start working with your team.
