“Nobody checks their emails after hours!” This was a response from a local business owner when I asked him “how engaged are your employees?”
One frustration from business owners is that the level of engagement from their employees does not match theirs. I hear phrases like: “Nobody seems to care as much as I do.”
Asking people to respond to texts/emails after hours are symptoms of missed expectations. There are missed expectations between the owner and employee. Many times, these gaps are because a common culture is not shared throughout the company.
EOS® (Entrepreneurial Operating System) companies use the People Analyzer® tool to make sure their culture is enforced and shared by all. This tool is a visual representation of the core values. When used correctly, the People Analyzer closes the gap, and employees can see how they rate against the core values. The + / – / +- ranking system helps facilitate clear communication between team members.
Having the right people on your team is important. The right people can either bring you energy or drain your energy. This simple tool is one way to make sure you are surrounded by the right people. The good news is that this tool, and others, are free.
