Listen to your team!

Listen to your team!I can’t express the need to listen to your team enough.  I was reminded when it was reported (rightly or wrongly) that employees at Dreamworld had expressed safety concerns for a period of time prior to the horrible unfortunate recent incident.This also happened with another high media case at the Bundaberg Hospital some years ago with Dr Patel.  Staff had also apparently raised concerns but they were not listened to and look what happened then!    Now, I did not look at the…See More

Does your Organisational Structure allow for Innovation?

I don’t think that innovation is anything new in business, however, what might be new is the expectation or should I say need for all employees in the business to be innovative rather than all the ideas coming from the Business Owners or Senior Managers.Whilst innovation, I am sure, has always been important in business, it certainly is now with the current market and level of competition.  Therefore, the need to continually be coming up with new and / or different ideas has never been more…See More

Management by Policies

Do you manage by policies?  Well, a lot do, so don’t worry, you’re not on your own.I appreciate that some situations call for this and / or it’s a starting point to a conversation.  It also depends on where the organisation is at, but have a think about this…. Managing by roles and policies is very transactional (and will limit the return), rather than being transformational.  Transactional leaders:are responsive;work within culture;manage through rewards and punishment;motivate by…See More

Employee Engagement - Work on your side

Create a Culture to Achieve Goals

Although we work with clients to identify or change their workplace culture, we also talk to a lot of other business owners, managers and boards about workplace culture.  For some of them the benefits can take a lot of convincing.I think most of those we talk to think business is good and it probably is, but it could be better, it can always be better and I am convinced that changing your workplace culture is part of the puzzle in making business better.  Without them experiencing it or seeing…See More
