Your People are Your Biggest Asset

Your People are Your Biggest Asset

To all managers out there, I want to ask you a question: what is your biggest asset?

STOP

Many of you think your biggest asset is your inventory. It’s NOT!

It’s your people.

The people that work for you are a reflection of you and the overall management team in a company.

Are there people that have been misguided? You may have to look in the mirror because they are just reflecting your approach.

I have been managing people for a long time. There are always going to be weak links. The question is, what are you doing about it to get these folks on track towards being more productive?

Typically a lack of productivity is not for a lack of effort (for the most part), but more so the type of ancillary stuff you are putting up with and not putting a stop to. That’s the type of stuff that can slow a company down.

I ask you to think about how much money are these people costing you everyday with what they are NOT doing?

As a manager, you are only as good as your weakest link. I was speaking with Lou Holtz recently and he said, “How do you have good people? You fire those who aren’t."
