Systems are critical to the success of your small business, because they create consistent results. Yet entrepreneurs have a passion for freedom and flexibility. If consistency is critical, but individuality is invaluable, what’s an entrepreneur to do? Error. Does not compute.
Focus on this video for 63 seconds to learn my program for successful–yet flexible–systems for your employees. I promise you won’t end up with an army of robots.
One question I hear from business owners is “how do I implement systems in my business but not turn my employees into robots?”
Let me provide three suggestions to help keep your system flexible.
First of all, are your systems simple? We just want bullet points here. Not every little word in detail. Allow a little bit of room for your employees to make decisions for themselves.
Second, do we train our employees regularly? By training them, you’ll empower them to learn and to grow, and to start making decisions on their own.
And finally, ask what’s in it for them? Often, entrepreneurs consider the system in terms of how it’s good for the business. Instead, ask how it’s good for the employee to follow the system. There are answers to that question.
I’d like you to answer in the comments section below—on a scale of zero to ten, how well are your employees following systems?
Also, if you have a question you’d like me to answer in a future video, ask that below as well.
Thanks for watching. Now go unleash the power of systems.
