The world of business is a competitive one, and to win you’ll need the kind of efficient, functioning office that only a cloud CRM system is designed to manage. You’ll never find success in the corporate world if you have to fight even your own employees. Your team needs to act like a team – and it needs to be a team that wants to win.
But how does that happen, exactly? Why is it that some offices work well together and others don’t? And – to focus even more tightly on the question – how can you make someone want to do a good job?
These are questions that many managers ask themselves. Some of them ask in a relaxed way as they get ready for work in the morning, but others ask it desperately, under a mountain of stress, as they look at their business model falling apart around them. But sooner or later, they’ll find that there is just no substitute for the two essential qualities of respect and clean, smooth organization.
An office is like a cake. If you want it to satisfy you, you’ll need to follow the right process to prepare it. But before you even begin to bake a cake, you need to be sure you have the right ingredients.
These are your employees.
But wait. Before you start picking your ingredients, you need to know what kind of cake you are making.
What is your company? What are its values? When employees speak to both the customers and to each other, is it more important for them to be professional or to be friendly? Are you going to demand a lot of work from your employees, or will there be a more relaxed atmosphere? Think about these questions, and find your company’s true identity. Then fill your office with people who fit well with that identity.
You aren’t done yet; you’ll soon need to manage them properly, and a cloud CRM system is the ideal way to do it. But even before we reach that point, already you should start to see some improvement, because your employees’ personalities should be generally the same as each other’s, and the same as yours. If some of your employees don’t fit the description you’re looking for, help guide them to the attitude you need to see. They will probably learn to embrace it – but if they don’t, then they might not belong with you.
Next, bring your employees together, and make sure that they understand that identity, and the goals of the company. After all, theyare the company. Together, all of you must work to define it. When everybody agrees on what they’re fighting for, it’s time to set real goals for everyone in the company. To do this, you need accurate ways to measure your progress, to make sure that you are reaching those goals.
