Small Business Tips Video #27 -Team Building in a Small BusinessOn August 20, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
I’m Steve Freeman with GreatBusinessContent.com. Building a team in a small business is more than just hiring people. It’s about building trust, cooperation, and respect for each other. . Providing a location where everyone can achieve their best. Meet Stephanie Ringer Chief Fun Officer of a company called WorkShop in Louisville KY. This place is wild, when I first walked
in I thought “What is this place”? Stephanie provides a location guaranteed to pull anybody out of their comfort zone, and she helps teams find focus. During today’s video she’s going to mention the 9 ground rules to team building, and she will reference a website. I’m going to post that at the end of the video. If you like what you see today, please share it,
like it, and subscribe to it. Hey Stephanie, what’s the most common reaction to WorkShop? They just walk in and they are like WHOA – it just erases all the stress, so when they actually walk into the meeting they are much more open minded and prepared for whatever
is going to be thrown at them because they’re just in amazement. They’re still looking around and they’re just excited, we put them in a place where they’re excited to see what’s next. Instead of “oh gosh I’m coming to a meeting
and I’ve got other things to do, and where’s my Blackberry and my iphone”? They’re actually coming in and like “okay, what’s next, there’s got to be something good going to happen”. It’s team building and it is business, but it’s
just in a business that’s outside the box because that’s my life, outside the box.
That is where I think. If you get to the heart of the matter which
and you lay a good foundation for team, these people are going to be bonded so that they no longer, they’re going to understand then and they’re going to actually feel that when somebody does come at them with a
complaint that there are still good motives, they’re not going to blame each other they will just blame the process. There is Tac4 Solutions has 9 ground rules to cohesive team behavior. Don’t come with a complaint without a solution, assume good motives, blame the process not the person. Those are the three key ones, there’s a lot of
little one but those are the three key. You can find them on their website tac4solutions.com, and the number 4 solutions. But those 9 ground rules are very important. If you’re having a really good, when you’re talking about strategic planning, if you’ve got 3 people on your team you still have to have those accountability conversations that are hard to do. And those are critical conversations where it’s hard to tell somebody “nah, I really don’t think that a good thing for me” or “ I don’t think that a good thing for us”
or “I don’t agree with that”. It just helps people not put defenses up. To understand, hey it’s coming to us with good motives and
give a good solution too.
