Do you have a written vision for your business? Is your team familiar with it? Without a vision, there is a lack of clarity about the ‘game you are playing’ together. In that case, everyone fills in the blanks the best they can, but there is often a lack of unity and common purpose. What is missing here is shared expectations. Shared expectations are essential for establishing accountability in any business. Without them, everyone isn’t on the same page. This opens the door to inconsistent results which can negatively impact your customer’s experience of your products and services.
Shared expectations are established by writing down the way you want things done. These documents become your systems and can be used for training when new employees come on board. Systems can include standards that speak to the quality of your products and services. High standards go a long way in setting your business apart from your competition. Written systems give you a baseline for employee performance reviews.
When the business owner turns his/her attention to providing the right tools for employee success, employees feel supported and are likely to want to stay with the company for a long time. The day-to-day frustrations are greatly reduced because everyone is on the same page.
Working with shared expectations creates accountability and accountability creates a foundation of trust and respect. Teams thrive in this kind of business culture. Having clarity about what is expected and understanding the standard of work required builds cohesive teams that are freed up to contribute more to the team and the business overall. Systems are the solution to building a business that works well for everyone; owner(s), employee(s), customers and vendors. You can think of basic business infrastructure as a three-legged stool.
