Creating good employees. Part 1

How are you today?

This morning, I found myself in a very sombre mood. When I woke up, things were stagnant. I was a little unsure of what to do next. I didn’t have instructions on the next steps of the project. I found myself wanting to do more. 

Has this happened to you? Going to work but not quite sure about the role you play or the task that needed to be finished today? 

This is not your fault. This is the fault of your employer. If you have finished your task, offer to help others. If you are unsure of what’s next, ask your boss/leader.  

Let’s get to work.

So many people are looking for a job and are eager to work. They have so much to offer and they are full of energy. How can you as an employer tap into that knowledge and energy? 

It is not as hard as you think. The power is literally in your hands. Surround yourself with people that compliment you and your needs. You have a CFO for a reason, you have a COO for a reason. You have them because YOU do not know everything. 

If you think you know everything, get someone to kick you in the ass or slap some sense into you. You cannot be an expert at everything. You may know a little about many things, but you cannot be the best CFO and also a social media expert while being a brain surgeon. 

You as the boss.

Look at your team and see if they are all as eager to work for you as the next person knocking on your door for a job…

There are so many people with great skills to offer. They do not all have to be young and fresh out of school with a degree. They may be seasoned professionals with incredible insight and experience that you may be able to pair with energetic eager fresh employees. 

In many ways, you are gaining… Experience paired with a fresh outlook and tech-savvy individuals. You can be brewing a fantastic team. But… You need to take a step back and see the full team on your pitch. 

The team you have assembled and set out to score the next point with, better be assigned to a good coach and that coach is you.

The coach.

This is where you come in. Do not look at yourself as the boss. Do not look at yourself as an owner. Look at yourself as a coach of the team. 

You are assembling your players and filling in the positions. A goalkeeper, a striker and your CFO is your best defender. Think of filling in positions on your team. 

Gather the team and assess the weakest link. Maybe they play better defence than the attacker role you have assigned to them. Maybe you need them on the creative team instead of the sales team because they have amazing ideas. 

You are the coach, not the boss. You are not a leader if you cannot bring your team to the next level.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
