10 Ways to Guarantee your top people will Quit!

Category: Real Estate

By: Mel Kleiman

Here are 10 ways to guarantee that your best people will quit:

10. Treat everyone equally. This may sound good, but your employees are not equal. Some are worth more, because they produce more results. The key is not to treat them equally; it is to treat them all fairly.

9. Tolerate mediocrity. A-players don’t have to or want to play with a bunch of C-players.

8. Have dumb rules. I did not say have no rules; I specified dumb rules. Great employees want to have guidelines and direction, but they don’t want to have rules that get in the way of doing their jobs or that conflict with the values the company says are important.

7. Don’t recognize outstanding performance and contributions. Remember Psychology 101: Behavior you want repeated should be rewarded immediately...

He put a video of the event on his website Sunday with the text, “Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100 percent authentic original signed Banksy canvases. For $60 each.”

The retailing was part of Banksy’s monthlong New York residency, called “Better Out Than In...

Study the Greats and Become Greater.

Category: Personal Development

study the greats

Why on earth do we all try to reinvent the wheel? We all try to do better than someone, however we rarely take the time to study how that person became great in the first place. Start with that, learn how those before you became great, follow their lead, then when you are closer to that same greatness then start to make the little changes, the small twists on what is already successful to take things to a whole other level. It is in small improvements that success usually comes, not wide swept changes. Take the time to build and grow then look to improve, you can’t do it all at once. Take the time to study someone else who has systems and ideas and the success you want and begin by ‘copying’ them...

Your Past is Just a Story.

Your Past

 

We cannot keep punishing ourselves, our clients and our business because of what has happened in the past. We need to learn from it, and move forward. Don’t let past mistakes get you down or influence your NOW or your future. Get on the horse and ride! We can accomplish so much and once we know that the past is just how I learned what to do going forward, we will see un-imagined growth take place in front of us! I know the past can hurt and scare us, but it is over and cannot do anything more to us, unless we allow it to. Take a moment learn from it and then move forward. Frankly DORI from Finding Nemo said it best … Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming swimming, just keep swimming!

 While everyone is preparing their objectives and to-do lists for 2012, I thought I would first start with the key moments of truth I experienced in 2011. Upon reflection, I came up with three.

Content Remains King
Nothing earth shattering here but an important concept to keep in mind as we race to be the most creative, the most innovative and the one that really stands out. We can do all of that but if our content isn’t relevant and engaging, we will sell no widgets.
