At Catalyst towers we have had a great start to the year with the expansion of our pr, graphics and online team. We have also been working on some really exciting new projects including the Professional Hairdresser Live! show which will now be appearing in the leading trade titles, on your door step with a flyer or even by text/email! Make sure you come and see us at the show.
With the new business and my team growing I had been thinking – ‘how am I going to cope and how will I get the most out of them?’ I wanted to know how I could make our money work harder!
The answer? Focus and energy! I can’t lie to you – its hard work and its 24/7 but it is well worth it. Initially I held our first meeting of the year out of the office the first week in January and we talked about all our plans and aspirations. I also asked each of the team -’where do you want to be in a years time both professionally and in your own personal life?’ We also discussed my plans and goals which allowed us to put a plan of action in place. We now had a focus and we are adhering to the plan at all times meeting regularly to ask ‘are we hitting our targets?’
Having this plan has given the team and I massive energy because we know what we want, we know how to get it and we know we are going to get it. If motivating yourself or your team is a struggle then I recommend buying the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhona Byrne. It will give you the positive energy you need to find a focus that will help you reach your objectives.
To keep staff motivated meet with them often and tell them about all the good and bad things that are happening in the business. I meet with my departments daily and hold team meetings twice a week. We also go out for drinks once a month to celebrate our success!
Remember focus and energy!
Until next time
