Your people will drive your results.
Most business leaders will attest to that. I’m often told that retaining good people, inspiring them, challenging them, and making them more productive is one of the greatest challenges in business.
There are so many hurdles and barriers that you need to overcome when creating a successful business and usually when you search to find the common denominator, or the key reason, that these issues exist, is almost always related to your people.
I have faced most business challenges in my role over many years, and have always approached them by working from the inside out. This means understanding the human capital first as people, then as employees. It is important to find out what matters to them most, then aiming to create an environment that supports their needs. If this can be achieved, managing people becomes a lot simpler.
