Staff Incentive for Your Business
Friends and family tell me there are many times I am a somewhat blunt in the way I say something. My comment about enjoying the business has been that none of your customers nor any employees of your business can enjoy the business unless you do so first. Sometimes I ask if an owner is having a good time with their business. The answer expected, and traditionally received is a simple, "Yes".
And my response is, "You forgot to tell your face". When I say this during a presentation, I can count on a sizable laugh from the audience. I think this is because they all know so many individuals this comment could be directed to.
I believe it was Neil Bonnett, a NASCAR driver killed in a practice run in 1994 (NASCAR fans help me out here), who was known for looking in the mirror every morning and singing this piece from the musical, "Oklahoma": "Oh what a beautiful morning. Oh what a beautiful day. I've got a beautiful feeling, everything's going my way".
What a great start to the day. You, your staff and your customers will love it.
We want to recognize A Carrot A Day by Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton, whose book provides the basis for each month's incentive idea.
