Start with your own perceptions of the value that your business can provide.
Sit down and think about what you think matters to each person on your executive team. What do they need from their job? Is it recognition? Financial rewards? Career advancement? Do they need to feel needed?
We think we know people, especially those we work with closely. But on a daily basis we’re in such a rush that often, we really don’t know them at all. Before sitting down with your executive team to find out what they need, start by identifying what you perceive as their needs. This small investment of alone time is a primer for seeing more rapid change down the line.
