There's No I in Team
We're focusing today's episode on bringing your team along for this ride. Your success is dependant on your team delivering an exceptional level of service day in day out and remember they're the ones who will be using these tools, implementing new workflows, and a whole lot more. But don't forget that change is hard, so you'll need to be clear and consistent when you communicate what you're doing and why you're doing it.
As you bring your team together recognize that we're all created differently, and cloning more accountants won't help you towards your goal. People have different skills, likes and dislikes and just as you went through a process of getting clarity about what you want and don't want to do, you should do the same thing with your team. In fact you'll probably want to do the same thing with your clients at some time, to help them get clarity on their 'why'. We also touch on how to spot a saboteur in your firm and how to handle such team members.
Building a high performing team is a challenging and rewarding process - remember to keep your vision front and center.
