3 Steps to Get The Most Out of Your Employees

3 Steps to Get The Most of Your Employees

“How do I get my team to perform effectively?” I’ve put together the 3 Steps to Get The Most Out of Your Employees so let me tell you, and trust me I’ve been down that road more times than I’d like to admit. I’d find someone who seemed like the perfect fit, set them up in the role, and then, barely a couple of weeks in, I’d be scratching my head, wondering where the person I interviewed had vanished to. They just weren’t delivering like I thought they would.

Now, after banging my head against the wall for years, I’ve nailed down three things that are absolutely crucial when you’re bringing someone on board.

1. Job Structure:

First off, it’s about the job itself. Is it laid out right? I mean, is every single step of the job mapped out? Are there checklists in place? And most importantly, are you training the new hire on these specifics? Everything has to be in black and white for them. If you’re not doing this, you’re setting them—and yourself—up for a world of chaos. Without this clarity, new hires will start doing things their way, and before you know it, the job you designed is barely recognizable.


2. Rules of Engagement:

Next up, it’s about the rules—every single one of them. From the minute they clock in, to how they take their breaks, down to the specifics of each task. You’ve got to spell it out. If you don’t, they’ll start making up their own rules, and suddenly, you’re watching your ace in the hole turn into a wildcard, not doing anything the way you expected. And let’s face it, they can’t read your mind.


3. Evaluation and Guidance:

Lastly, if you’ve got everything down on paper and there are still issues, it’s time to take a hard look. Is it them, or is it you? Are you constantly having to micromanage? Did they seem sharper in the interview than they are on the job? This is where you need to dive deep. And remember, it’s not just about them. It’s about you too. Are you giving them the daily training they need? Are you sitting down with them, showing them the ropes, setting the standard high?

And here’s another thing—communication is key. You’ve got to keep it simple. There’s a real issue with how well people understand complex language nowadays. If you’re throwing around big words, you might as well be speaking another language. Ever read a page in a book and then realize you didn’t retain a single thing? That’s what happens when you don’t keep it simple. If you’re using terms like ‘subluxation,’ you better be ready to explain it in plain English.

Hiring is a whole different ball game. If you’re not looking into what really drives a person during your interviews, you’re missing the mark. I’ve learned this the hard way over 25 years. The first 15 years? A revolving door of hires. But not anymore. My team sticks around because I’ve learned to train them right and choose them wisely.

So there you have it. The 3 steps to get the most of your employees. I hope this sheds some light on the matter. If you’ve got questions or just want to chat about it, don’t hesitate to reach out. Click the link below, and let’s get you connected with Quentin.
