Building relationships is such an important part of not only your business success, but the culture you create.
Stop and take a moment: how many times have you seen a boss get increasingly frustrated about a lack of results? Or maybe you've even instigated a dressing-down because targets are being consistently missed. It's not easy to endure failure time and time again, but there are common denominators that can spell disaster for a team.
The biggest threat is that you don't know your people, and your staff don't have a safe environment to work – one where they trust the leadership and each other. So how do you create one? By getting to know your people and building that trust from the ground up.
No matter the size of your company, it will be filled with a variety of personalities and different experiences. And the only way you can pour a strong foundation for future success is to get to know your people on a human level.
This video will explain how solid relationships forged at an early stage can help you and your staff work through the tough times. More importantly, it can set the stage for the future knowing that everyone can rely on each other.
