Do you ever find yourself spinning in circles after training the perfect go-getting leader, only to find out they no longer feel passion for the event industry? Or perhaps it’s the very-talented employee who, thanks to your guidance, feels ready to go off and start his or her own venture. As business owners, it’s inevitable to face these struggles at some point and it’s important to find ways to avoid it, as well as ways to cope with it.
Along the way, I’ve learned that you have to learn how each member works, as well as what their ticking points are, if you want to keep your perfect team. Some are motivated by money, others by an ideal schedule, and some just want to be acknowledged. Perhaps, it’s even a combination of all of the above. So how exactly do you assemble a devoted team?
