Forging The Journey E48: How The Podcast Changed The Neomag
by forgingthejourney on October 1, 2019 at 12:00 PM
Graig's business, The Neomag, has been radically changed. In this episode we talk about creating vision, mission statements, and then communicating these out to our team. But it is not just about talk. This is about action. This is the moment a business owner takes the vision they have in their head and actually lays it out for the team. Graig put it all on the table, learned the personalities of his employees, their strengths and weaknesses, and then brought it all together to showcase the mission behind the Neomag. Ultimately our teams need to know our mission so well that they could clearly speak to that vision to anyone they meet. Communicating your vision empowers employees to be productive members of the team, contributing to the overall success of your small business. This is a great discussion and is sure to get wheels turning in everyones heads. We are excited to continue Forging onward as we build our businesses from the ground up. Thank you for listening to Forging The Journey Podcast!
