Good Afternoon  ,

We all know gratitude is an important tool in a leader's toolbox. While it's important to keep that in mind all the time, the coming holiday season is an ideal time to say "Thank you!".

In this article, Inc. magazine contributor Scott Mautz suggests 8 unique ways to show your gratitude to your employees.

Scott's suggestions will make memorable occasions for your employees and their families. Including families is important. The work your employees do can be fully effective only if it's compatible with their family life. In a sense, when you hire someone to do a job, you're really hiring the whole family. Recognizing their importance in the employee's life is very effective in inspiring good performance. 

Let the family see that their star (your employee) is doing important work, and that you appreciate that. Then the family will be much more inclined to support what the employee does for you. When you ask for extra effort, your guy or gal will be more effective if they have their family's support.

Let your workers and their families see the impact of their performance on you...and on your family. Scott's first suggestion is especially unique and effective in doing that. 

All of these suggestions help your people see that they're making a real contribution...to something larger than themselves. Job satisfaction surveys remind us how much this means to one's sense of reward for the work they do.

Of course these suggestions can apply to birthdays and other special occasions as well. They might be even more effective if they're done for no apparent reason - just to say "I appreciate you!".

Enjoy Scott's unique suggestions for ways to reward your employees. 

For my monthly subscribers this will be the last issue this year. I wish you a very Merry Christmas, or whatever occasion you celebrate this month, and a Happy New Year. Have a banner year in 2020!

How's 2019 Shaping up for You? 
 
 
Imagine going to a unique networking event. At this special event, you find all your ideal prospects waiting to talk to you.

Our unique process can give you this kind of exposure to the people you want to help!

We find and start conversations with your ideal client prospects. Then we communicate your value, and get them to schedule appointments with you...all on autopilot. This can happen for you! Learn how here.  
 
 
When you join Smart Money Network's Business Accelerator Platform , we:
  • Edit your LinkedIn Profile Page so it better attracts people in your market. 
(Hint: What painful issue do you resolve for your clients? If your LinkedIn profile describes how you make your clients' lives better, it's rare! Most describe the merchant's qualifications and expertise. They say little about what he/she does to eliminate clients' pain.)
  • Search LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members for the few thousand who match your ideal client profile. Y ou define your  best prospect for us .  
(Even if you can find these people manually, it will take hours away from your work with your current clients.)
  • Invite about 100 of these best prospects every day to connect with you on LinkedIn.
  • Send a welcome message to those who accept your invitation and connect.
(Typically 15% or more. Currently nearly 40% of my invitees are connecting.) 
  • Deliver something of value to them from you, and then do it again! 
  • Begin a "drip campaign" of carefully timed messages, continuing to provide value. These messages give...give... give...and then ask. No pitches!
 
All of these messages come from you personally. We want and expect your input in developing them...unless you want us to just do it. You can follow the threads and adjust your messages as you see better ways to engage your prospects. We're always ready to talk with you about improving your messaging.
 
Want to "ripen" an opportunity with a direct personal message?  See a "hot" prospect you want to engage with your unique message? Take over the exchange manually!

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to help business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
