Do you ever feel like your small business feels just like a family? If you are a small business owner it can certainly feel like it with all the craziness and dynamics between your employees ! Let’s take a look at the dynamics of small business.
The Good and The Bad
Each small business has its own personal dynamics. Within OmniBiz Services there are a good number of employees that are all over the place… quite literally spread out across the country! That certainly plays a role in the dynamics of the business. The employees that make up your small, tight-knit business can really start to feel like a family in it’s own. However,one common issue small businesses have with this “family dynamic” is that when it’s good it’s really GOOD but when it’s bad it’s really BAD. Which is true of real life families as well!
Communicate, Communicate, Communicate!
How do you combat problems when times get tough in your business, especially when you have a family-like dynamic? One way is with communication! It sounds so simple but it is so important. By keeping clear, open lines of communication you can avoid the headaches and miscommunications. This is especially if your small business family uses technology as the primary means of relaying information. Another important part is just being honest. Now that doesn’t mean you have to put it all out there but being able to have an honest conversation or give honest feedback is going to really benefit your business. Finally, be willing to admit when you are wrong and apologize.
