3 Things You Can Do to Engage Your Team and Save Money Now
A CEO that Iâ€™ve had coached for two years has just done 100% revenue growth in a 24 month period, he then asked me:Â â€œWhat can I do to quickly engage my team around saving money now and do the same with profit?â€
Are you experiencing the same thing? Listed below are things you can do and donâ€™t worry, itâ€™ll only take you 60 minutes or less:
Give them Post-Its: Gather all your employees in the board room then give them 10 Post-It notes each and ask them to write down SPECIFIC ideas, one idea per Post-It note, on what the company can do to :
- ïƒ˜Â Save Money
- ïƒ˜Â Increase Sales
- ïƒ˜Â Increase Margin
*Good ideas take time, so be patient, and give your employees 5 minutes to come up with the ideas.
*Share: Once they have finished, have each person stand up and read what they have written on their Post-It notes then ask them to put them up on the wall. After all the notes are up on the wall, have your employees vote on them. Vote by putting a tick mark at the bottom of the Post-It notes.
(# of Post-It notes/ Divided by the number of people = Number of Votes each person gets)
*Eliminate and Implement: Count up the tick marks and eliminates Post-It notes with zero or low votes, pick out the Post-It notes with the most votes and do the ones that are easy, fast to do, and cost little or nothing at all.
