📈 We all know that testing and measuring the various components of your business is essential to finding the most efficient and effective ways of operating. Remember - what gets measured gets managed, and what gets managed can be improved!
💡 In this video I look at a 1930s study known to as ’The Hawthorne Studies’. The original purpose of the study was to examine the effect that different aspects of the work environment had on worker productivity.
📝 Instead, the conclusion showed an improvement in performance that was down to the workers being observed, something referred to as The Hawthorne effect.
📊 Put simply: when people are aware their outcomes are being measured, they perform better. This can drive up employee engagement and, in turn, results.
🙋♂️ Do you ever wish your team members took more ownership of their roles?
🗣 A simple way to start introducing this point of culture is to create a space for collaborative ideas and decision-making.
💭 Allowing people to express their ideas in a judgement free space and come together to build on them will generate ownership, not only of the ideas but also the tasks needed in order to put them into action.
🌱 Do you have any other tips to encourage ownership? Let me know in the comments!
🗺 As a business owner, you are the captain of your own ship – for both the good and bad days! This can be tough to do at times, especially when it’s hard to see how the bad comes down to you still.
💡 When things do go wrong, think about what you could have done done to prevent it - for example: more training, clearer communication, better systems.
🌱 Seeing the owner and higher-level management take accountability for their mistakes is a powerful tool in encouraging ownership across the board. When mistakes are met with accountability and progressive action rather than repercussions, the entire process can be made into a positive one for everyone involved.
💬 How do you manage accountability and ownership when things don’t go to plan?

Are you investing in yourself as much as you're investing in your business? That might be ensuring you take time off to recharge, or effectively planning to make the most of your time. It might be ensuring you are continuing to read and learn, and feeding this new knowledge and skill into improving your work. Remember your business is a reflection of you - when you grow, your business grows.

Target, Offer... and then Copy.

There are 4 main areas of systemisation:
👨💼 People and education,
🕒 Delivery and distribution,
📊 Testing and measuring,
💻 Systems and technology.
Now all of these areas in your business can and should follow a system to ensure the best output, whether that be quicker/smoother delivery or more accurate testing for new products and services. The result of implementing these systems? Your business moves along with far less input from you, the owner.
Some for this sunny week (so far...).

How do you ensure you maintain productivity? 📈
This month at ActionCOACH we’re talking Systems. Implementing systems into your business isn't the most exciting process, but it leads to exciting results. So what can systems do for you? Well, it’s all in the acronym of SYSTEM- Save Yourself Time, Energy and Money!
How much time, energy and money do you think your business can save by implementing systems?
Though things appear to be largely heading back to normal, many of us are still working from home right now. As we head into the weekend, why not read some tips on how to manage the distractions that come with being surrounded by home life. 🏠Head over to our ActionCOACH blog at: https://buff.ly/37VlKrF
When it comes to your employees acting with integrity, an element of trust is required from the business owner and management teams. This has been even more pertinent during the COVID-19 pandemic, as millions of people began working from home. So how do you foster a culture of integrity and trust when you haven't been able to work in the same room for months? The answer might be simpler than you think: open and honest communication channels. If you allow your employees to speak to you openly about any issues they are facing or any needs they may have, you will see the results in their work.

Running your business with integrity is more than just feeling good about what you're doing. Integrity has tangiable benefits, such as increased customer retention, higher employee satisfaction and a more positive brand reputation. This means that any short-term impacts, giving refunds for example, will be remedied by the long-term benefits.
Agreements within the world of business can mean many things- signed contracts, refunds, and paying on time as a few examples. Each business will have different agreements and different ways of ensuring they are met.
How does your business keep to your agreements?
PAUSE for reflection, right here. This is your prompt to take five minutes to reflect on the commitments you've made over the past month.
Have they been kept to? Have they been broken? If so, why?
Be honest with yourself here- don't let yourself get away with saying 'I didn't have time'. Focus on why YOU didn't hold up your end of an agreement. Did you forget? Did you push it to the side for other, more important things? Or maybe there was something external that meant it couldn't happen? Explore it for 5 minutes and dig deep into your reasons.
If there are any agreements that were broken that you should have completed or regret breaking, write down 3 action points for how you can make sure that doesn't happen again.
