Delegation is a critical leadership skill and in my experience as a leadership coach and facilitator,  it is not done well at any level in many organisations!

How do you reward your staff when they go over and above your expectations?

I sat in on a great session while overseas recently with Michelle Hoskin, a business coach in the UK who shared a couple of really simple, easy to implement ideas for growing your business.

Franchising Networks: The impact of one and the importance of the Franchisor

August 10, 2016 | Simone Pentis

Regardless of what franchise they visit customers should receive a consistent experience.

When dealing with a franchise network, people will not often distinguish between different franchised businesses, but instead think of one overall business. Franchising as a business format encourages the above view. Most franchise systems seek to ensure that every existing or potential customer can generally expect to experience the same consistent products and/or services irrelevant […]
