I recently attended a fitness conference in Atlanta. This was an opportunity for my business partner and me to learn about the latest trends so we can position our fitness center for future growth.
I love attending these conferences, as they are very empowering.
They also help with ACCOUNTABILITY as the speakers really drill down on you… especially if you are doing something wrong and/or need to change your practices. At times this can be very painful, however, there is no other way to learn and get better.
One interesting aspect I learned was the importance of having a quality team with you on your journey.
In previous posts I have discussed the aspect of “human capital”. Over the years I have seen many a business owner talk about their employees as a burden. They view them as replaceable cogs and nothing more. If this is the type of culture in your business you need to change your ways… and change it FAST!
You see, the best way to build a big business is to build a TEAM. Hire good people and continually invest in their development. Train them, motivate them and mentor them.
If you take this approach it will cultivate a team-oriented culture that will trickle down through every aspect of your business. It will enhance the experience for the business and most importantly… your customers.
If you find yourself wanting to take the next step with your business… think about building your TEAM!
You will be glad you did!
