As we progress with this business and the people in it, my role is constantly changing. But it is important that I (and my staff) take stock of where we are, and where we want to be moving forward. And ensure that the journey is not only mapping to what we want to achieve but is also enjoyable along the way.
For me, one of the greatest parts of my job now that client work has decreased significantly, is the growth and development of our staff.
I’ve spoken about this previously in my article: Last year we spent $250,000 on staff support and professional development.
It means more than anything else in my career has mattered. My goal, is to help them achieve their goals. My goal is to be the one who gets to raise their hand. This constantly means I have to improve what I do, improve what the business is doing, grow the business into new areas, provide more and more opportunities for professional and personal development for my staff. Helping them achieve their goals, pushing them forward, only makes me better, makes me motivated and pushes us to new heights.
I love what I do and I don’t want it to stop. This is my life, not my job. The end.
