Developing Organizational Focus
Contractor Evolution • 40m
Have you ever been frustrated by the fact that your team JUST DOESN’T GET IT?
It’s so clear to you what needs to happen within your organization - what problems need to be solved, what priorities should be front of mind, where the effort of your organization needs to be, but most if not all of this is totally lost on your employees.
Owners frequently overestimate how clearly they are communicating the standards that they have in their minds to the people who need to hear it most.
This is why themes are such a powerful leadership tool for contractors to know about.
Themes are a super process-driven way to make sure your team's action is aligned with that vision that's so crystal clear in your head.
This is why we're really excited to have Ashley Ennis on this episode of Contractor Evolution.
Ashley has previously run a highly successful window cleaning franchise system spanning seven states and provinces with 45 franchisees. Since then Ashley has spent the last four years as a business coach for Breakthrough Academy actively training and coaching 40 contracting home service companies and achieving the controlled growth that they want and need.
She uses themes with her Breakthrough Academy members to over-communicate business priorities and makes sure that what needs to get done does.
