BY brett

The last weeks of the year are fast-approaching so it’s time to slow down and refresh your hard-working brain. Here are a collection of great must-read business articles this November, to give you a new perspective and start you thinking about next year.

Your number one focus when managing the team should be to keep them happy and working to their strengths. That’s the thing that helps you retain employees. And retaining people has a huge economic advantage in that you’re not wasting time perpetually recruiting and training new staff. Longevity also sends a message of stability to your clients.

Airbnb (and other forward-thinking companies) provide a great example for all of us trying to run successful 21st-century businesses.

2. Strategy and service are directly connected

It’s no good thinking about staffing, profit margins and pricing in that situation.

Read on to find out why.
