There are some clients you may work with, and all you are doing is just that...working. Of course, you still provide the best possible service, but you don’t go too far above and beyond.
You just do your job.
Then there are the clients you really look forward to working with. Maybe you have a more personal connection with them, or maybe their field of work is something you love.
Either way, the best work comes out of you, when you are working for them. You’re enjoying yourself.
Create a Culture that Your Employees Will Love
At KBK Communications, we are fortunate to have many amazing clients. One of our clients, in particular, is so easy to work with. They respond quickly, which makes our jobs much easier (and in turn, makes their Inbound Marketing Program soar). I’ve noticed that this client, in particular, has a great corporate culture. They treat their employees well, and it shows. Because of this culture, we’re able to be really hands-on with them. We’re able to work with them, as a well-oiled machine. And, because we work so well together, we can create some amazing ideas...together.
Create a Lovable Culture Through Positive Feedback
Positive feedback is another thing that seems to really help people work at their best. Give some credit to them, when they deserve it. Positive reinforcement does work. Your employees will thank you for it. Who doesn’t like a pat on the back every now and again?
Create a Lovable Culture Through Open Communication
From an employee’s perspective, when work tasks get difficult, and you get frustrated, you have to bring those frustrations the table. If you don’t, you may convince yourself to leave a good job, where, had you said what was wrong...your employer may have helped find a solution.
I am sure you’ve heard Confucius’ quote, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” While not every day will be rainbows and butterflies, if you do like your job and the people you work for you may grow to really love it.
