We are all too familiar with the daily grind. Your employees are usually stuck in the moment focusing on the current day and the metrics they are pursing. Seldom will your employees think about the bigger picture or what I label as “the next”.
Throughout your weekly one-on-one’s (you are having those right?), regularly weave in discussion points that focus on where the team and company are headed next. Make sure you effectively connect their role in helping to achieve those visions.
When you help your employees to see the bigger picture and the role they play in painting it, you inspire them to keep grinding through. Doing this well and often will lead to a happier and more engaged workforce.
