Your Business Coach: Focus on the little things
Bill Fournet: A Boy Scout trip to remote area reinforces the importance of seemingly small things.
Most business leaders agree they should spend more of their time on the “little things” — the things that are hard to measure, but lead to a high-performing team and strong culture. Yet, they often respond that there is no time to do it, because of all the other things on their plate. Make the time. Carve out one hour a day and schedule it to spend time with your team. Take a co-worker to lunch. It's amazing what you might learn from them. And by focusing on those little things, you can create a big thing — success.
