Every good leader knows that actions speak much louder than words. You can tell your team how much you value them… Or you can SHOW them!

How? Invest in their success.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times… Investing in your team’s success potential is absolutely critical to the success of your Practice.

 

What do I mean by that? I’m talking about providing your team members with the knowledge and skill set they need to succeed. I’m talking about investing in TEAM TRAININGS. When you invest in trainings that allow your team to grow on both a personal and professional level, you demonstrate that:

a) Your team members are a valuable asset to you and your company

b) You believe in their enormous growth potential, and

c) You care about them individually as people.

 

And while training your team is the right thing to do, it also has some selfish perks!! (Just think of these as the icing on the cake!) For starters, investing in team trainings builds loyalty and reduces turnover. It also establishes leadership… AND it boosts your Practice’s results in every area! (Don’t believe me? We’ve got thousands of case studies to prove it.)

 

I’m not feeding you sales gibberish. I’m not desperate to sell more trainings. This is actually something that I believe in with all of my heart. I take team trainings very seriously, and trust me… I practice what I preach. I invest in regular trainings for every area of my company–Certified Trainers, Member Services, Marketing Team, Sales, Fulfillment, etc.

In fact, one week ago I held an optional seminar (on a SATURDAY) where I spoke to my entire team about the importance of saving, budgeting, and understanding their finances. I taught them about assets, net worth, debt reduction, and creating a financial action plan that will secure their financial future…  A lot of the same big topics that I cover with my clients. I spent ALL DAY speaking to my team members about their own personal finances —not work-related financial issues–when I could have been relaxing with my family on the lake.

The thing is, I didn’t mind. No, seriously! I was more than happy to do it.

 

Why?

Because I value each and every person that works at the Scheduling Institute. Yes, I value their professional success… But I equally value their personal success and happiness! I want to give them the tools they need to succeed. I want to INVEST in their futures. I want them to know that their leader thinks they’re incredibly valuable.

So, instead of writing them a simple “Thank You” note and leaving it at that, I planned an entire Financial Seminar on the weekend… And invited them all to attend for FREE.

 

It’s that simple.

Invest in your team. Do it as often as you think you should… And then do it a WHOLE LOT more. I promise you, it’s a no-brainer with an enormous ROI for your Practice.

But that’s not all… It’s also your biggest opportunity for impact. If you get this right, you will have a serious impact on the lives and futures of your employees. You will become a hero to someone just by encouraging them to grow and succeed.
