  • In most companies the owner tries to run all 3 and thus can’t get it all done. We are going to change that here today … Use examples for each level supporting the next. Owner supports the team by giving direction, giving leadership, paying bills, staying profitable, paying wages, giving encouragement, building systems etc etc. Team supports the customer with great sales skills, great service, great quality and great consistency. Customers support the business by coming back more often, spending more on each visit and telling their friends about you. And in the turn the business supports the owner through profits and over time less hours worked. 3 Mins
