WORDS OF WISDOM

3 KEYS TO BEING FUTURE-PROOF

  1. Culture — A skilled professional can work anywhere. People are getting pickier about where they choose to invest their time and effort, and they aren’t settling anymore. So this runs deeper than just offering a bit more money; you have to pull your employees in and make them feel like an important part of your company culture. SkySlope used to do weekly all-hands meetings, where everyone would stop what they were doing and listen to announcements, make their own shout-outs, and converse. With remote work increasing you can still maintain your culture like this, via Zoom events or invites to the office for special occasions.
  2. Vision — A companies direction will often shift over time. Their goals and directives will evolve and expand. And so one thing that should never change is their overall vision. A business owner should know what their company vision is from day one, and never lose sight of it. And your employees should always be aware of that vision and feel like their role contributes directly to it. If they believe in your vision, they’ll believe in you. And good workers stick around for what they believe in.
  3. Great leaders — Not “good”, but great. Resentment, lack of respect or faith, are things employees can and will experience if they don’t have a great leader. This doesn’t mean employing some hard-ass to micromanage them into the ground for the sake of quarterly numbers. It means having leaders who can relate the vision to their employees, make them feel connected to it via mutual goals. So great leaders instill inspiration by practicing what they preach and thus motivate hard workers. A great leader can also be flexible when appropriate, but firm when necessary.
