Episode 329 Mike and Mike - Our Hiring Process
This Week’s Episode:
This week, I’m joined by my business partner, Mike Cowper. These episodes with Mike are great because we share what’s going on with our business and we provide you with actionable items for your business.
In this conversation, you will hear Mike and I talk about a recent incident. We had one of our employees leave and we needed to rebound and recover from this situation. While we weren’t completely satisfied with this person, we weren’t exactly ready for them to leave. This person leaving put us in a bit of a bind and we explain how we dealt with that situation.
This leads us into a discussion on goals. Because we have goals and track our company’s numbers, we were able to identify that this individual was not producing up to our expectations. We talk about our goals and Mike briefly touches on 30-60-90 goals. We also explain why education is important in accomplishing goals.
If you’re interested in learning more about our coaching, email me - [email protected]. We’d love to help you meet your goals in 2017.
