Action For The Week

  • My team always get to know something that I am about to do. And they generally approve. getting them on your side is all part of the team building so that when something happens like introducing something new, they are already with you.

  • Explaining to your team is one thing, in my experience, getting them to back you is another.
    You have to be believe in what you are selling. and then they may well believe in you. It’s not always a given just because they are part of the team.
