In the time I spend with my coaching clients one of most asked about events is managing and motivating people.
Some have issues with people showing up on time, others have problems with trainers not putting the time in to improve, some just have people that have bad attitudes.
When you are the leader of an organization your most important role is to lead by example.
You cannot expect the people that work for you to do things that you are not willing to do yourself.
As entrepreneurs we must be willing to get our hands dirty.
When problems arise like the ones above it may also be a hiring issue.
We must remember that we are in the fitness industry, this is not rocket science and it does not take a genius to learn how to train someone.
Hiring a person that is action oriented, has minimal experience, a strong willingness to learn, a very big desire to be part of your team and is great with people is a win.
Yes, this person will take more of your time as the business owner but I promise it will be worth it in the end.
A huge hiring mistake is hiring someone that may be very smart but lacks some very key ingredients that make a successful trainer.
List out the top 10 attributes you are looking for in a perfect trainer.
I will give you my list to help guide you
Bonus: Positive Energy
Create this list for yourself and then rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 on how you rank in each of these qualities.
This serves as a personal development improvement map for you and gives you what you are looking for in your next hire.
When you start to hire people that have the right attributes and you do your part in leading by example many problems with people will go away.
I would love to see your list, please post it in the comments section below
