Ask yourself this question today — What’s my limiting belief about my employees?

We’ve discovered that a majority of business owners and CEOs have limiting beliefs about what their employees are capable of doing, being, or creating in their business.

Is this something you struggle with too? 

Are You Limiting Your Employees?

Do you have limiting beliefs in any of these areas in regards to your employees?

  • what they can or can’t do; 
  • what their responsibilities are; or
  • what they can produce for your business.

If so, then these may be getting in the way of your business experiencing more profit, more growth, and actually more return on your payroll investment.

What do you believe about your employees on an individual basis, as a department or group?

Are you transferring your limiting belief to them?

Are you decreasing their ability to produce, collaborate, and deliver a better product or service to your customers?

If this idea shakes you a little bit, then I’d love to take you through the Engagement Multiplier. This is a process that we have to check where you’re at as far as your beliefs go about your employees.

You Set the Tone

As the leader you set the tone of the company. Along with that tone is a belief about what your employee is capable of doing; what they can accomplish; how good of a job they can do; how they show up to work. In order to set the right tone, you need to check in with yourself and be really honest. Ask yourself whether you have labeled and believed that your employee is only capable of certain things.

If you are limiting them by your beliefs of what you think they can do — you need to change! Stop your limiting beliefs around your employees, so that they can be set free to be more productive and do greater work. This in turn will give you more time and money from your business.

If you find this compelling and want to have an honest exchange about it, reach out to us and schedule a free consultation. Let’s change your limiting beliefs and empower your employees to do their very best.

Today I want to talk to you about the third step in The Employee Maximizer. It’s a process that we have developed called The Dream Employee which you may recall I’ve talked about in another blog.

The Dream Employee is a great way to find out what motivates your employees. By going through a simple questioning process with each one of your team members at your company on a monthly basis, you can learn how to help, support and encourage them to achieve their own personal goals and dreams.

When you begin to know your employees on a personal level, it helps them to see the connection between their goal or dream and their work that they are doing in your company. It helps create collaboration and makes a connection to their job that helps with retention, motivation and engagement to the company’s vision.

People that are achieving their own personal goals or dreams are internally motivated so you don’t have to do all the motivating every day, every month or every quarter.

All you have to do is help them make the connection between their job and their own personal goals. Your company culture changes once they realize that you really care, and show them that their work is a vehicle that can help them achieve some of their goals and dreams.

Reach out to us and let us know if you’d like to talk about this. We’d love to share the idea with you in more detail.

I spoke to you about The Employee Maximizer a couple of weeks ago. Well, the second step in this process is called The Conative Solution. What if you had a way to find out how your employee worked most naturally? The assessment we use relates to a person’s conative or “instinct” or “doing” nature. It doesn’t change over a lifetime unlike IQ or personality tests.

It helps identify and know how each employee works in their greatest strength. This will help you arrange their tasks and what they are doing. You could also use this assessment to help you manage and work with them in a way that helps them be more productive and have less stress in their job. 

This is the only assessment of its kind in the world. It’s about the way you conatively work and live. If you’re interested in finding out more about this, please reach out to us and schedule a free consultation. We’d love to tell you more about it.

We have a process called The Survey Solution that we have been using for several years which provides business owners, CEOs and executives the information they need to find out what their employees are really thinking about their company.

This confidential third-party survey lets you know what your employees think about their jobs, their coworkers, your customers, and then about their own future with your company. It’s a really vital piece of information that enables you to manage, lead, and empower your employees to be successful. It can also be helpful in retaining employees and fully engaging them in the work they are doing.

The survey results remain anonymous so that it protects both the employee and the employer and allows for more honest and authentic answers. We’ve been doing this and getting great results for businesses.

The results and summary also help the leadership to guide, direct and to get the best out of their employees and payroll investment. Another benefit is creating a culture of understanding and collaboration among the staff.

If you’d like to see how this works, reach out to us and schedule a zoom call so that we can talk about doing a survey for your company at no charge to you to show you how effective this can be for your business. It will take your business to a whole new level in every way.

I want to speak to you today about a new offering we have called The Employee Maximizer. What it does very simply is help you create great employees!

Not only will this help improve their attitude towards their job but it will also improve company culture. You will understand the best way they can work for you to produce the most profits and results.

Through this process we will help you find out what really motivates your employee outside of work as well. Why do they come to work on Monday? What’s really going on in their lives?

It will also give you tips on how you can have internally motivated employees on an ongoing basis.

The Employee Maximizer is for the business owner that wants to get a better return for their payroll investment. Or, maybe you’d like to see more collaboration and creativity with your employees.

Like most business owners, you’d probably like to work less hours but in order to do that you need to be able to have a business that is consistently growing. This really takes a great team to do this.

So, the Employee Maximizer helps create a great team by addressing what your employees are thinking — the good, the bad, and the ugly of it. Finding out this information enables you to manage, guide and help them.

Second of all, you need to know how they naturally work best.  We have a unique process geared towards this that can deliver valuable information. It’s one of a kind and not a personality assessment you may have had them do in the past.

Thirdly, do you know why your employees show up on Monday? What is personally motivating them to come to work, be productive, or in some cases not be productive — what’s distracting them? Discovering what that is can help you come alongside them and be on that journey with them. Thus, giving you the opportunity to help them make the connection between being successful at work and also achieving some of their own personal goals and dreams – and then you can partner with them in this.

After the last three or four years, we have found the combination of these three things done together over a year’s period of time, have produced tremendous results. We have a lot of testimonies to share with you about that.

If you’re ready to get a better return on your payroll investment, a better experience for your customer, and more time and money from your business for yourself then reach out to us and schedule a free consultation today.

We’d love to provide one of these three processes at no risk to you at all. We take all the risk because we’re sure that we will create value for you.

The impact the three-step process of The Employee Maximizer will have on your business is give you more time, money and freedom to enjoy your life.

One sunny afternoon, two business owners who had graduated from the same university ran into each other. They had both had the same professors who taught them the ins and outs of running a business. They were both filled with dreams of becoming rich by building a successful company that made a huge difference in the world.

Recently when these two guys ran into each other while on a break at a seminar, they realized they were still very much alike. Both were happily married. Both had young kids. And both, as it turned out, had started a business in the same industry.

BUT there was one difference!

One of these business school grads was working as a solo entrepreneur making a comfortable $100,000 per year; the other guy had built a team of Dream Employees that were fully engaged and all had an “ownership” mentality. He had invested and leveraged all their skills, abilities, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and their creativeness to build a company that had accomplished all his hopes, dreams and aspirations. He was raking in over $1 million a year in net profits.

What made the difference?

The Secret was The Dream Employee Process

If you’re like me, when you hear a story like this you wonder what really did make the difference between these two men?

We all know stories like this, and we all have evidence demonstrating that it isn’t always raw talent, intelligence, perseverance or even dedication that makes a difference. It isn’t that one person has a “burning desire” and the other doesn’t.

The difference lies in this –

  • What each person knows.
  • How they personally make use of their knowledge.
  • The difference is in continuously growing and using their knowledge.

I’d love to help you can grow your knowledge and learn how to have a successful business by leveraging The Dream Employee process. Schedule a free consultation now to learn more about it.

Helping your employees find their big “why” can also help you communicate your company’s “why”. It’s a conversation that you’ll find fruitful in managing, supporting and leading your team. If they understand their “why”, then you can communicate better what the company’s “why” is, thus connecting the two of those together. When people get clear about their “why”, they gain confidence. They get committed to the task. They have a sense of courage that takes them to a new level of performance.

Finding the “why” of your employees is critically important in order for you to get the most leverage out of their talent and ability as they help you build your company — whether you have 10 or 10,000 employees. You need to help them identify their why and then connect it back to their job or work. This is an ecosystem that can provide you with long-term internally motivated employees by finding their why.

Ask them these questions:

  • Why are they working at your company?
  • Why are they doing the work that they’re doing?
  • What is the purpose of their job?
  • Are they clear about it being a vehicle for them to achieve the things that they want to achieve in their life?

Have you helped them draw the connection between their job and and their big “why”?

This is an area where you have to start asking questions — even in the interview process when you’re on boarding somebody. Why are you here? How do you see this as a fit? How does this fit into your life? How does this fit into the big “why” of your life? And then, support them in what they tell you.

So “why” is a great question. It’s simple but it can dramatically improve your employee engagement with all your employees. 

Everybody’s looking for an edge in business – and one such advantage is finding the “why” of your employees, your team, your managers, and your leadership. When you can do that and connect the “why” for them personally with the “why” for the company, then you’ve got something! That is what we call an unfair advantage in the marketplace because your people are internally motivated with the big “why”. This is the secret sauce of your advantage. 

We look forward to hearing what you’re finding when you’re asking “why” questions. Let us know because we’d love to talk to you about it.

I want to talk about something that you may not think about from a business standpoint as an entrepreneur, business leader or CEO, and that’s HOPE.

You can lose almost anything in your business or your personal life but if you lose this you’re sunk! For example, you can go through bankruptcy, experience a bad partnership, downturn in sales, layoffs, slow economy, but if you just keep going forward, you will have a bigger future.

The one thing you can’t lose is the Hope that it’s going to be better tomorrow and in the future.

Because if you do, it’s almost impossible to get it back.

So what are you doing today?

What are you doing in your life personally and in your business to protect the hope that you have for today and for the future?

Think about it.

We spend time with our clients protecting their hope. We are there to encourage and help them.

It’s a mindset and it’s a resilience that you have to continually work on and build on.

A foundation of hope is really what’s going to see you through the down times so that you can have the high times, the better times, the bigger future.

Let us know how you’re protecting the most valuable asset in your business — “Hope”.

Thought for the day:  Your biggest failure in business or personally is your ticket to your biggest success. In other words, you can turn any failure around and transform it into a Win!

If you think back to the beginning of your business, for a lot of us, we can attribute our greatest success to a failure, mistake or something that didn’t work well. And what we did to combat that failure was we took action to turn it around 180 degrees and make it a Win instead!

So identify your failure, figure out what the opposite of your failure is, and then create Success out of it.

Send us your overcoming success story. We’d love to be inspired by you!!!
