As a business owner is it vital that you have loyal and productive employees. Obviously and consistently demonstrating your involvement in the success and well-being of every employee is the key. And well run One On One meetings with your people are an essential element in making that happen.

Employees withhold their loyalty to you, withhold their best effort, or worse, abruptly leave your company, when you don’t communicate well enough and/or are afraid to give genuine and sincere feedback.
Big Fat Truth: You can’t buy engagement or loyalty. You must create those things. And you can. And once you do, your people will be both fiercely loyal and highly productive…if…they fully support your sparklingly clear vision of where your business is going and how you intend to get it there.
To build fierce loyalty and intense productivity you need to create the right opportunities for your people. You need to develop them and to give them interesting work.
You must communicate with them. This needs to be two-way. You need to listen as well as just talking to them, as this shows your respect, builds trust and openness. Then, you must take some measure of visible action based upon the wishes for change and improvement they express to you.
You need to appreciate your people. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Esteem is one of our most basic needs. You can help fulfil this in your people by giving your team members praise for a job well done, as everyone likes and need to feel genuinely appreciated. It’s hard to overdue this.
You need to inspire your people to find their own level of motivation as motivation comes from within a person. You inspire the development of motivation by creating a positive environment where your people can be successful and by supporting them, but most of all…by sharing a compelling vision of where you are going as a business and how you will get there. A sparklingly clear and compelling Vision Statement is a must have.
If you can do these things, your people can be genuinely loyal and highly productive, and they will fervently speak highly of you, their boss.
HOW TO DO THIS
Utilize One On One interactions – 20 to 30 minutes every month – in which you ask some of the key questions I’ve outlined below.
One On Ones are all about your people and building a strong, trusting relationship with them. Asking the right questions and following through on what you talk about will build a strong, lasting relationship for each member of your team.
Beyond flashy perks and novel benefits, how can an organization show employees the kind of care that ultimately converts to loyalty and productivity? Consider the following.
CULTURE AND EMPOWERMENT MATTERS
Can you define your company culture? If you can’t sum it up in a few words, chances are your people don’t relate to it, and therefore don’t feel close to your company.
Do you have tools and resources that empower your people with effective ways to accomplish their tasks and duties? Do you provide tangible value to your people in exchange for the efforts they must put forth?
TRAINING AND EDUCATION
Technology improves your ability to deliver quality training and education, and helps you track performance and identify ways to improve. Your employees want tools that will help them grow and develop as part of your team.
Do you have the systems in place to support individual and team performance across an entire operational cycle of your enterprise, systems that support targeted training and improve results?
