1 Mins

They have got to be open and willing to learn and fully behind the company aims and values. Seems simple, seems not too much to ask. Launched into a final trial month training programme with them, with an adaptation of a few pages from my own business coach’s training manual to endeavour to get them to link themselves to the company in thought. One of questions is simply to list the top five things they would like the business and therefore themselves to achieve in next year and in next five years. This seems to be the stumbler. Enormous mental blanks on this one. There’s a lot of "err, want more money" but no-one seems to have a vision for the business itself; no-one seems to see a connection even between the money and the business success. Going to be a little of an uphill battle, this one!
