Better to be single than in a bad relationship
It’s a simple concept. But not always so easy to live by. Right? After all, what good could a bad relationship ever do for you? And the same is true for business relationships. So, how, where, or why do things go wrong? Well, as far as personal relationships, we’re all different, so I can’t really help you there. But I’ve got some proven answers for the bad business relationships…
In your business, a bad relationship might actually start with you.
Uh-oh. I might’ve just hit a nerve and sent some people packin’. But I stand by the point. If you’re not clear with yourself about your core values…or if you’re willing to compromise them, you’re practically asking for trouble. And I get it. I’m sure you wanna be liked and connected. Because the thought of being alone, in the mean ol’ business world, is scary.
So, you look for someone, practically anyone who’s breathing, to fill a position. Because you need the help to grow. But the trouble is, it’s a position you haven’t clearly defined. I’m talking about roles and responsibilities. Or maybe you did clearly define the position, but then you compromised just so you could hire somebody faster. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but you’re almost asking for a bad relationship.
But you can avoid most problems by sticking with your vision, mission, and values.
Hire someone who fits your business culture. Someone who can completely handle the job you hire them to do. Here’s a simple checklist of three steps to keep in mind as you do…
- Follow your established company values
- Define your ideal organization roles
- Hire only those who have the will and attitude to fit 1&2.
