Distinguishing A Job From A Career

Once you have found the right people who you can trust to run your business and have helped them be consistent with their efforts, it’s now a good time to let them know what their value to your business is.

One of the most striking differences between a job and a career is the pride you hold in owning the title. A job is merely a task that can easily be accomplished by any person who was given the same set of instructions and resources. On the other hand, a career is something you specialise in.

Besides this difference, a career also has a progressive nature. One of the best ways you can value your team members is by giving them materials that will grow their skills and expertise.

Great Business Owners Include Their Team Members In The Growth Of The Business

When your team members improve while working for you, it becomes a mutually beneficial relationship. Aside from that, you have to realise that passionate people are quite hard to come by.

If you find a person who has a passion and desire to become the best in what he/she does, it is your responsibility to nurture that as leader and owner of the business.

On top of generating more sales for the business, you are bound to find out that developing untapped potential is one of the best accomplishments you can get.

In This Podcast

Matt Jones and Adrian Fadini discuss how to help your team members become more passionate about their role in your business.

After the attracting the right team members and keeping them striving, your team’s growth is now in the palm of your hands. Giving your staff a pathway to a brighter future is the main game plan.

They also discuss in this podcast how to maintain a low staff turnover and avoid the so-called “price war”.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
