To real estate companies and brokerages you may wonder how culture plays a role in the success of your team and how that translates to sales success and customer loyalty.  You are all familier with the question, "What is your customer value proposition?"  Your customer value proposition is directly related to the value the team and employees see in your organizationHow do you become an employer of choice? You need a great employer brand and a positive Employee Value Proposition (EVP). Your brand is made up of pillars which are your values.Culture influences every area of the organization. It affects the public and customer perception, but it also affects the way people do their jobs and their connection to the mission and values of the organization. In short, an organization’s culture i...

How do you find the right person for you or with you in your real estate business? It depends. First, make certain you know the core competencies needed in the job. Depending on the role this could be anywhere from accountability for others or relationship building to attention to detail or from conflict management to futuristic thinking. Many businesses find that selecting and hiring of the right person is a daunting task. Some people just hire anyone who applies, or, at best, they may ask a few quick questions before making an offer. Hiring the wrong person can be costly but hiring high performing people will result in helping your organization meet its goals and will promote your brand to your customers. Before accepting an application or advertising you should have a clear descript...

What is the biggest issue in any organization and with every sales transaction?  If you answered communication, you would be with most people who answered that question. What can be done about improving communication, and how to get those wasted dollars back and reinvested in our other areas of your business, your division, or department? Communication is where it all starts. The importance of open communication, simply, cannot be overstated as it is fundamental in building trust, managing conflict, gaining commitment, maintaining accountability, and identifying team results. Much has been said and written about clear and concise communication. Much has been said about listening carefully. What if you are doing all of that but you still are having problems with your communication? We k...

Those living in Westchester County and especially Armonk, NY have a real gem right at their doorsteps. It is a world famous college with a performing arts center.  Purchase College is part of the SUNY (State University of New York) system.  The tuition is low for in state students.  However, if you apply for the performing arts program majors you face some very stiff competition.World famous performers, editors, producers, and film makers have graduated from Purchase College.  I remember taking my older daughter to colleges and she was interested in theater arts.  We took a tour and the dean of the school spoke to us.  He said that this is a studio school.  If you are majoring in film editing you will be in the dark for 4 years.  Needless to say, it takes commitment to graduate.What doe...

“Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude.” Zig ZiglarThe fact is that people do not put enough emphasis on how attitude affects performance. Yes, attitudes DO affect performance. In fact, they affect everything that we do.Now if you doubt that then look back at the involuntary terminations in your organization. You will probably find that most of the terminations occurred due to poor attitudes and behaviors rather than lack of skills.There is a strong link between attitude and performance. Let’s start with defining what attitude means in this context. An attitude is a pattern of thought. It affects how we approach everything we do. If you change your attitude and change your outlook you will change your outcomes. Not that this is as easy as turning on a switch. It is not that easy. You c...

What do you think of this title?  For HR professionals and Small Business Owners I hope in resonates because it is the topic of our next meeting of the HR Council of The Business Council of Westchester.We have spent so many previous meetings covering Covid questions and reopening.  It is time to move forward.  The HR Council, one of several groups within The Business Council of Westchester, meets every other month for an hour.

Do you think that your words and actions inspire others? If you are the manager or the owner is that enough to have people, follow you?As the owner or manager, you have the authority by virtue of your role. However, your power is granted by those on your team or those you supervise. For example, in organization I have worked with there are always certain people who are sought out or considered “go to” people. Although they may have no title people seem to value their opinions and respect them. These are individuals who have been granted power by others by virtue of their leadership skills.How much power do you do you have? Why not find out. Ask your colleagues or employees to give you some “360 feedback.” Ask them what they feel is your biggest leadership challenge and what you can do t...
