3 Things That Solve 90% Of Your WorkForce Problems

There are a ton of different metrics you can use to measure the performance of your company, but how many of those really drive the success? In a world where data is king, individualism, communication, and culture have started to take a back seat.

To be successful in your business, there are three foundational blocks that need to remain constant. While they may seem straightforward, there is much more to them than meets the eye. In fact, they are so easily said that every company wants you to believe that they are part of who they are. So, why are companies still struggling with retention, performance, and growth?

Clear And Intentional Communication

Communication is the single most important part of driving success, without it, there is no clear path. Being able to effectively communicate goes far beyond, how is your day going? Really digging into who you are working with, understanding where they are coming from, and getting to know their drivers is vital to leading them down a path of success and growth.

Having that personal and professional communication shows emotional intelligence, compasion, empathy, and true care for your team on an individual level. Getting on this level allows you to communicate company changes, policies, and vision without it falling on deaf ears. Because you took the time to create that relationship, your team will communicate issues, deficiencies, and struggles easily.

Communication is also key to building a culture of trust, cohesiveness, and unity. Opening the door for all ideas, no matter how small or how big, gives you a plethora of minds to pull information from. Remember, it's all about team.

Culture Keeps People And Drives Results

Like it or not, your culture will either elevate or limit your teams performance. Think about it, how would you perform if you were surrounded with negativity and toxicity all the time? Not very well. Your team reacts the same way.

Creating a culture on clear communication, individualism, and trust helps people feel as if they are part of something great. It also makes them want to do better on their own terms, not forced. This is important because the culture you establish directly affects' your teams at home life. Coming into work should not be stressful, but a welcoming experience and drive to becoming better.

Establishing the right culture will make or break your retention and attraction of employees. Yes, you might be able to fool them at the beginning but your true culture will eventually come out.

Creating A Sense Of Purpose

Stressing the role of an employee is vastly different than creating a sense of purpose. Everyone has their duties, but what is their purpose, their endgame, what elevates them as an individual? How are they part of the bigger picture? What is their contribution to the goal in five years? What does this opportunity do for them personally and professionally?

Too often companies drive role over purpose. Without a clear sense of purpose a person has no drive, determination, or motivation to become anything other than their position. They come in rinse and repeat, much like groundhog day where everything is the same and no clear end goal in mind.

Elevating your employees contribution and laying down a path for their success creates an innate ability to perform at a higher level. Their drive becomes second nature as they have something to look forward to that impacts every aspect of their life.

Laying the ground rules for success is easier said than done. This is also the same reason companies continue to struggle with retention, performance, and attracting talent.

One of the biggest disconnects between employee and leadership is the inability to define great communication, great culture, and sense of purpose. In order to truly be successful in each of these areas, you have to be able to understand, define, and implement them. Just because you say it, doesn't mean it comes to fruition.
