You can have a great business and do amazing work, but if your team culture lacks trust, you are going to hold your business back from its full potential. It’s true what they say: Teamwork makes the dream work.
This week on the Run Like Clockwork podcast, Emily talks with Clockwork rockstar, Laura Kwapien, about her experience as a team member in Amanda Bond’s company, The Ad Strategist. Laura shares how clockworking on a team that she trusts allowed her to learn + grow from an administrative position into a coaching role.
In this episode Laura + Emily discuss:
- How vulnerability builds trust between CEO and team members
- Experience of learning Clockwork at the same time as joining a company
- The importance of having a system for knowledge transfer
- The FIVE Ts: Trash, Trim, Transfer, Treasure, and TRUST
- How Laura clockworked herself from an admin position into a coach role
Is your company a place you would want to work as a team member? Does your culture foster trust through vulnerability + communication? Do you have a system for transferring knowledge so your team can be autonomous? Are you actively encouraging growth, trusting each person to move into a role that challenges + excites them?
These are all questions to chew on and take an honest look at. Would love to hear how you are actively building trust on your team. Tag us on Instagram @rlclockwork or share inside our free Run Like Clockwork Facebook Community.
