Motivationg your employees

The Football World Cup is at a moment of destiny for England and has had an amazing effect of uniting millions in the UK and abroad.
A moment to achieve a sporting accolade and generate a good feel factor, the envy of politicians and business owners.

England’s achievement to date has left us with a legacy - which is that skill, determination, hard work, continuous training and financial investment count for a lot.

It’s a legacy that business can learn from. Many businesses and their founders are already aware of the factors behind their success, but what can they do to 
optimise that success - or improve on it?

Behind our football team is a highly professional approach to winning, and it is one that business can emulate.

This is how:

  • Motivate staff and get them all pulling together for the good of the business
  • Train or coach staff where training or coaching is required 
  • Set objectives and targets 
  • Measure and analyse the results

 Persist with these steps until the desired results are reached or surpassed.


We’re here to help you get started with Dinamks.
With the right toolset, you don’t need a team of specialists to make it happen.  Dinamiks is such a toolset – and it’s online, too, as a cloud app – which means no software installation.
It’s proven and is available as a free trial to help you get the most out of it without immediate investment outlay.

I know from speaking with other business owners that virtually all of them are concerned about getting and retaining skilled and engaged employees, and this is made more pressing through our uncertainty of retaining EU nationals after 29 March 2019.

Now is the time to put in place a solution that will:

  • improve your employee engagement
  • deliver greater workplace performance
  • increase productivity and
  • make more profit

Until 15th December 2017 you can have all this, forever, for just £1.50 per month per employee!

Why have Appraisals

Post Date: 06/04/2017

Keeping Connected

As human beings, we like to have order and a structure in our lives, we like to know what we are doing, how and why – and how well we are doing it.
The same in business – structure and order is a business plan, with goals, objectives and management accounts to know how well the business is doing. We capture details of our products and services to know which are most beneficial to the bottom line and where those are not so beneficial, we review, modify or stop delivering them.
Why not do something similar with your employees? Your employees are the engine to deliver the business goals and they need to know what these goals are and have the skills to achieve them. Continue

What a fantastic result for Team GB at the 2016 Rio Olympics!!

Post Date: 26/08/2016

Team GB - 2nd to the USA with more medals than ever before for an away Olympics - an impressive 67 medals!

Questions were asked how Team GB could do so well at these Olympics when their results leading up to the Olympics were not as good?

Yes – financial investment from Lottery Funding a key factor, but most important of all is the commitment and dedication of all the individuals to achieve their goals. They had a programme of progressive objectives with continuing development plans.

Now – what would a plan like this do for your business and employees?

What about your employees – what is in place to support and develop them?

  • Are all your employees aware of and know what the business goals are?
  • Do they know how their role and their objectives support those goals?

  • Is there a continuous feedback process in place?

Prepare to have your mind blown...

Post Date: 28/07/2016

I found an article on BuzzFeed on 27th July 2016 ... and it BLEW MY MIND! 

It's all about how the map of the world that we all know and love is incredibly misleading. It turns out, it's essentially wrong!

Because the world is round and the map is flat, in order to make everything fit properly, the further away from the equator the country, the larger it looks on the map.

So it turns out that Australia is actually the same size as the US, Canada is way smaller than we thought and Antarctica (that massive white land mass that takes up the entire bottom of the map) is actually just a little bigger than Brazil! 

It's definitely worth a look if you haven’t seen it already. 

Check it out here and let me know if your mind's been blown too!

Uncertain about the future – you need not be! Consider these steps and take them on board

Post Date: 08/07/2016

Have you got Clarity on where you are going?

If you can clearly see where you want to go, where you want to be, then progress comes down to action.

Decide on a course of action and Plan – will help focus and ease worry

Action planning is a process to help you focus your thoughts and decide on the steps to take to achieve your goals

  • Where am I now
  • Where do I want to be
  • How do I get there – in small steps
  • Taking action
  • Revisit where am I now

Take charge and do what is right – take action now

Take responsibility to gain control your actions are important for you and your business – you must feel and think that you actually deserve what you want – taking responsibility is doing the right thing.

Think about your customer and make your customer journey memorable

Customer experience is KING!

Customers have outcomes to fulfil and they have experiences as to how those outcomes are fulfilled. Customer experience is how you make them feel and is based on your actions versus their expectations.

Improve upon your marketing system to do the work once

Understanding and knowing your target market is key for your marketing system. You will use it to communicate the benefits of your business offering to your target market.

Whatever you do, keep it simple and work within your budget and capability – take small steps to see what works and make any adjustments required to maintain its success

Work with those who boost your energy and not those who rob you of your energy

We are in a period of uncertainty and change and there will be a lot of people who are feeling very down and upset. Whilst you may be in a positive frame of mind as you have made a decision and created an action plan to move on, you could find yourself being dragged down by another’s view on life. You have a choice on how to handle these situations – either avoid them or consciously change the other person’s state so that they do not rob you of your energy. Both options are not easy and will require discipline on your part.

How does the market perceive you - what are you known for that is unique to you

You must take control of your message, otherwise potential customers will form impressions of you as defined by someone else.

Know what your key messages are and communicate them often and simply. Spend some time working on this – what is unique about you and your business

Are you prepared to do the hard work that makes the selling easy?

Selling is something that does not come naturally to a lot of people, but it is essential to the life blood of a business. Why is it considered to be hard work – probably as it is doing the work we do not like to do.

I struggle with this side of business and have to prepare myself mentally, take the steps of conversations to secure meetings to gain sales. I must confess that the buzz of securing a sale far outweighs all the hard work of the journey to get there and each little step builds for the next one.

How to motivate and engage your staff

Post Date: 18/04/2016

Staff don't care?

Research has shown that there is a link between positive employee/employer relationships for profit, customer satisfaction and innovation in the workplace. On the flip side, disengaged employees present huge risks. The obvious being loss of productivity which could disenchant your best people who may leave and then you face resistance for organisational changes if the disengaged employees are not on board. Without positive employee/employer relationships, customer service and innovation are threatened and disengaged employees unlikely to work for the good of the company.
