Do you know what your agency employees really think? What do agency employees want their agency owners to know? In this video, we hear from an actual* agency account manager as she tells all about her experience working at an agency.
Are you guilty of any of these leadership mistakes?
1. Taking credit for employees work or ideas.
2. Not appearing to trust or empower employees.
3. Not caring if employees are overworked.
4. Not advocating when it comes to monetary compensation.
5. Hiring or promoting the wrong people
6. Not backing employees when there is a dispute with a client.
7. Not providing proper direction on assessments/roles
8. Micromanaging and doesn’t allow freedom to work.
9. Focusing more on weakness than your strengths.
10. Not setting set clear expectations.
Your employees are your agency's #1 asset. Make sure you're treating them right with the appreciation and respect they deserve. When your team feels undervalued, they will not make decisions that are in the best interest of the agency. This will hinder your growth and success.
