Time to stop and chat is very valuable in every business. How often do you stop working just to talk with someone in your team?
Every week, I make time to sit and chat with at least one person in our team. Whether it’s dinner to celebrate a TPC anniversary, coffee with someone who needs some support, heading out of town with our leadership team or simply picking up the phone and asking “How’s it going? Is there anything I can do for you?”, talk time is one of the most important things leaders can do.
In the past two weeks I’ve spent time doing all of the above, and every minute was worthwhile. I feel very lucky to spend time with our inspiring team. They seem to love having the CEO’s ear for a while and together we solve challenges and generate ideas to find a better way both personally and for The Physio Co. It’s brilliant!
Talk time. Make it part of your week, every week.
