3 Questions to Deal with Complacency
When complacency starts to set in, it can often be found alongside a “there’s always tomorrow” mentality. But what if everyone could see the dollar-value of even a single extra effort compounded over the lifetime of a customer — or how much is being risked by not stepping up?
In this FREE eGuide — Talent Development in the Farm Equipment Industry — 3 Ways to Defeat Complacency — we pose three thought-provoking questions meant to get employees to fully engage with their companies, customers and work. In addition to reflecting on them yourself, you’ll also be able to see responses like these and more from 33 of your own peers, fellow Farm Equipment subscribers, who share their successes when it comes to motivating their employees:
- “Find out why the fire isn’t burning. Once you know that you can start to address the ‘why not’ question.” — Brad Dougherty, Ag Spray Equipment
- “Find them a mentor. There’s value in taking an average performer and putting them in the same space as an exceptional performer. Often competition between the two will raise all boats.” — Dean Walker, The McGregor Company
- “Optimism and hard work that everyone sees. Employees will only climb as high as the leader.” — Dave Vandervalk, Nieboer Farm Supplies
