Ask Your Employees How to Be Awesome!

What is one thing you wish your employees would talk to you about, but usually don’t and why?

How to build your business! Most employees of early stage companies have brilliant insight into how you can improve you daily processes to operate more efficiently, or how to make your product better. I’m always shocked at what good ideas people have but fail to vocalize. There are a multitude of reasons why employees don’t speak up, ranging from never being asked all the way to fear of rejection. I’ve found for the most part it’s because they’re really just never asked. To solve this problem, I recommend setting up weekly or monthly 1 on 1 closed-door meetings with employees just to give them the forum to open up and speak their opinion about what the company can do better and how the product can be better (keep the meetings quick).
