i am the 'waste detective'...
Waste not, want not!
Many years ago I ran a B2B sales business where we would sell for companies that didn't have a sales force. At one point we were selling advertising for various companies and it was during this time that I first started thinking about business coaching.
I remember one company who'd just spent 50k on yellow pages advertising and didn't know how many sales they'd got from it!
I was astounded!
How could you spend that kind of money and not know whether it was giving you a ROI?
I came across this type of scenario over and over again. I began to understand that most people start a business because they are good at a particular trade or job but that doesn't make them good at business.
I really don’t like waste. I'm like the Waste Detective!
Did you know that research shows that your new team members first day on the job can have a huge impact on what they think about working for you and how long they will stay?
Sadly, a lot of organisations and businesses don't get this right! It seems that if you are lucky you'll get a half assed induction and if you are not, you'll get enough information to scramble your brain by 11am!
It's either a case of too much too soon or not enough.
The first day of work is an experience worth investing in. In fact, let's take it back a step - the weeks leading up to the first day can be equally important to how someone feels on their first day...
