How to Focus on Business Growth and Take Care of Your Team
Updated: Apr 1, 2021
When you’re busy growing, when do you find the time to invest in your team?
It’s a common question among the tech industry. With tech leaders finding themselves in periods of constant growth, they’re unsure how to maintain their people-first environment. That’s where we come in. Because we understand how important it is to keep your business growing while taking care of your team, but sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day or resources to get it all done. And this is where outside help, like TPR, comes in.
We know that when it comes to tech:
You need a strong foundation to keep up with constant growth.
You don’t just want to assume what your team needs, but sometimes it seems like there’s no other option.
You’re attracting top talent, but you know you need help to keep them feeling happy, engaged, purposeful, and productive.
You need some guidance on how to plan proactively, instead of just reacting.
Where our Discovery Process comes in:
We set you up with a strong foundation so that you can focus on bigger business goals.
We take the time to go on a listening tour to understand what your team needs and help them feel heard.
We create a customized learning and development curriculum based on our discovery to help create a productive and engaged team culture.
We provide you with curriculum, tools, and resources to help you be proactive.
How our Discovery Process is broken down:
We work to understand the specific company goals and objectives.
We meet with key individuals to identify company strengths and opportunities, the competitive environment, the current culture, and future goals.
We find out if there is a disconnect between what the company thinks its team needs and what the team is actually asking for. We do this by:
Sending out a questionnaire that we customize for each company we work with.
Once the questionnaire is completed and we have all submissions, we review the responses and highlight the main areas where teams are looking for support.
We report our findings to the company and give our suggested recommendations for moving forward and the types of curriculum that would be most beneficial.
Once we receive the go-ahead to move forward, we plan out a customized learning and development curriculum based on the information we gathered in our discovery process.
Common learning and development curriculum that we’ve created for our clients has included:
Leadership 101 We also cover topics like change leadership
How to talk to your team
How to have productive 1:1’s
How to set clear expectations
How to promote someone
How to utilize skills in the workplace
Time management and accountability
And with every curriculum we develop, we make sure to take into account the team’s learning style, the length of time they’d like to work with us, and how they’d like to share.
Most of the curriculum we develop has to do with guiding and developing the leadership within a company. We believe that when you have strong leadership, you have a strong culture where everyone feels connected to the mission, vision, and strategic goals.
This only helps to promote a company’s forward-facing culture that encourages growth and embraces change, and that’s a company that people want to be a part of and stay at.
And that’s why it’s our goal to help companies in the tech industry - with our learning and development programs - recruit top talent, maintain a healthy work culture, and keep employee retention high. That’s how you keep growing while also maintaining a people-first environment.
