218: Build a Team That Takes Ownership with Vicki Suiter

Building great teams is a critical element to building a great business, and so is teaching people to manage for results. My returning guest, Vicki Suiter, with Suiter Business Builders, is a best-selling author and an expert contractor business coach. Today, she shares with us how to build teams that perform at a higher level, that view accountability with a fresh perspective, and that follow through on agreements. What you’ll hear in this episode: Operating from expectations rather than agreements results in ambiguity and shortcomings. Vicki explains the difference between expectations and agreements. Make SMART agreements (Specific, Measurable, clear Accountability, Realistic, Time-Driven). The same principles of how you approach managing a well-run construction project are the same principles that, if you apply those in your conversations with people at a micro level, will result in getting a lot more work done. Practice building these principles into your communications and your work culture. A little extra effort on the front end will save a lot of time on the back end and you’ll get more consistent results from your team. Our willingness to take responsibility is one of the greatest gifts we have as leaders. Responsibility does not mean shame-blaming or fault; responsibility means the ability to respond. In Vicki’s upcoming FREE, LIVE webinar, she will be sharing a checklist for managing agreements with people. Vicki reveals the 3 key things she will be sharing during her webinar that will help you tap into your employees.   Connect with Vicki!
