Cathy Matthews's curator insight, March 21, 2014 9:56 AM

Your business team is like family and should be treated with dignity and respect. Your team, if focused on obtaining a common goal and proud (not to mention excited) to come to work each day, is what makes an organization successful. This is accomplished through defined goals, clear strategy, clear communication, and working well with others. As my dad used to say (a very successful businessman who worked his way to President of his company), there are 3 rules to live by in the business world: 1. Love what you do; 2. Love the people you work with; 3. Love yourself.

Jill Miller, SPHR's curator insight, March 21, 2014 3:37 PM

Hold to your principles when hiring and managing to get and keep great people.

Jeremy Barton's curator insight, March 24, 2014 4:56 AM

Employing the right people first time round, what a win.

 

The interaction, trust and camaraderie of your teams can make or break your business.
