One of your firm’s greatest challenges and, arguably, one of the areas of greatest reward, comes from the 'how to' of getting the best out of your people, your team.

One argument says that we should build social capital, forging stronger connections between ourselves and our team and between team members, so that they feel a greater sense of camaraderie. But the challenge here is that we could burn lots of time, and time is money. Why do that, when we could just get our team working and making the firm some money?

It's with great pride that I was able to get a ‘yes’ from Margaret Heffernan to join our HumaniseTheNumbers.online podcast. Margaret shares her experiences of working with multiple leaders of substantial businesses, as well as those she acquired from setting up her own businesses over time. She reveals her insights into the value of social capital, building those stronger connections, so that a team are better engaged and more enthusiastic, and, as a natural consequence, will deliver better and higher quality work, and deliver it faster, generating a true bottom line improvement in results across the firm.

So why not, if you want to get more from your team, with your team, join Margaret and me at www.humanisethenumbers.online, or on your favourite podcast platform.

I'm certain you'll get some real insights, real value, from the nuggets that Margaret shares. I'll see you there.
