As a staffing firm owner or executive, you probably excel at seeing the big picture and developing far-reaching ideas. But it can be tough to take that vision and break it into actionable steps.
Consider where you are and analyze what it will take to reach your goals. Are you making a significant change that should be approached incrementally to ensure success or are you simply articulating your current business philosophy? Or something in between? This can make a big difference in your approach.
Here are some tips to help you achieve your vision.
Build a change-loving team. Hire people who are receptive to new ideas. Organizations need to adapt and move forward in order to change. People who say “But we’ve always done it this way” are only going to hold you back.
Allow ideas to bubble up. You never know where great ideas are going to come from. Create a culture where employees at all levels are encouraged to come forward with their thoughts. This will make it easier for you to get cooperation from the whole staff in executing on your vision.
Communicate openly. Let people know what’s going on every step of the way. Tell them what your goals are and how you intend to achieve them. This will go a long way toward achieving buy-in at every level.
Ask for help. It’s not possible to do it on your own. You’ll need the help of every member of your team to achieve your vision and grow your firm. Solicit ideas, maintain communication and build an innovative culture. You’ll find your employees are engaged and eager to pitch in where they are needed.
Make it a priority. Ideas need room to breathe. If your days are filled with fires to put out and mindless administrative tasks, there is no space to brainstorm. Flesh out ideas and develop action items that can make it a reality.
