Focus and work with your team members on setting goals in the growth areas of your business. Retail sales, client referrals, pre-bookings and premium service promotions should be at the top of the list. Help them practice dialogues and create strategies to support these initiatives moving forward. Ask questions about how they are going to achieve the goals you set together, and keep asking them until they come up with solutions and ideas on how they will achieve them.

If you have a large team, have your managers or department heads support you in this coaching process. Your team members will appreciate you for taking time to focus positively on them.

Molding a top team

Creating a dynamic team takes time, dedication, and listening and responding to their needs. This way, you see your people grow and achieve goals they never could have imagined otherwise. By creating these relationships, the connections you have will be richer and more rewarding and more than likely, your emotional and financial bottom line will reflect this excellence.
