  • 1. Team is Family: How We Do It at iThemes Cory Miller @CoryMiller303
  • 2. @corymiller303#wpsessions Why I’ve been successful & made money?
  • 3. @corymiller303#wpsessions I treat my team like family
  • 4. @corymiller303#wpsessions A core value & key to our success
  • 5. @corymiller303#wpsessions So what are families all about?
  • 6. @corymiller303#wpsessions Families share a common bond
  • 7. @corymiller303#wpsessions Families should love and care about each other when no one else does
  • 8. @corymiller303#wpsessions Families have an uncommon commitment, loyalty & sacrifice for one another
  • 9. @corymiller303#wpsessions That’s what I wanted
  • 10. @corymiller303#wpsessions A small group supremely committed to GO FAR TOGETHER
  • 11. @corymiller303#wpsessions To do that, we needed a radical bond & commitment
  • 12. @corymiller303#wpsessions Fostering values of a family in our team
  • 13. @corymiller303#wpsessions BUT ... this breaks the rules of entrepreneurship
  • 14. @corymiller303#wpsessions You’re not supposed to care that much
  • 15. @corymiller303#wpsessions You’re supposed to keep it all separate
  • 16. @corymiller303#wpsessions And employees are supposed to just do their jobs & give their best anyway
  • 17. @corymiller303#wpsessions But if you do business as usual, you’ll get the same mediocre results
  • 18. @corymiller303#wpsessions We, entrepreneurs, need to learn ...
  • 19. @corymiller303#wpsessions EMPATHY
  • 20. @corymiller303#wpsessions CARING
  • 21. @corymiller303#wpsessions Aren’t warm & fuzzy words; it’s a more human way of business
  • 22. @corymiller303#wpsessions Do it right and you’ll love the outcomes & cherish the experiences
  • 23. @corymiller303#wpsessions But it ain’t easy & it gets messy sometimes
  • 24. @corymiller303#wpsessions Again, not a fad tactic; it’s a lasting core value
  • 25. @corymiller303#wpsessions We have to continually work & act on it
  • 26. @corymiller303#wpsessions However, neglect it at your own cost
  • 27. @corymiller303#wpsessions Here’s how we approach business like family to get extraordinary results
  • 28. @corymiller303#wpsessions 1. We are a Family to BELONG to
  • 29. @corymiller303#wpsessions Everybody wants to belong
  • 30. @corymiller303#wpsessions But not everybody is a fit
  • 31. @corymiller303#wpsessions Find ways to show we’re an exclusive group they belong to
  • 32. @corymiller303#wpsessions i.e.The pirate flag, shirts, hangouts, traveling together
  • 33. @corymiller303#wpsessions 2. We are a Family to CONTRIBUTE to
  • 34. @corymiller303#wpsessions Everybody contributes, no castaways
  • 35. @corymiller303#wpsessions Contribution is required, valued & celebrated
  • 36. @corymiller303#wpsessions Always, always give credit where credit is deserved
  • 37. @corymiller303#wpsessions When you contribute, you give something of yourself to others
  • 38. @corymiller303#wpsessions i.e.The About Page & Ringing the Bell
  • 39. @corymiller303#wpsessions 3. We are a Family COMMITTED to each other
  • 40. @corymiller303#wpsessions All for one One for all
  • 41. @corymiller303#wpsessions No rockstars No divas
  • 42. @corymiller303#wpsessions Whatever it takes, but we go together
  • 43. @corymiller303#wpsessions Committed means caring
  • 44. @corymiller303#wpsessions i.e. Our team brought us meals when baby was born
  • 45. @corymiller303#wpsessions Also, making sure the right people are on the boat
  • 46. @corymiller303#wpsessions 4. We are a Family who ENJOYS each other
  • 47. @corymiller303#wpsessions Which means spending time together ‘off the clock’
  • 48. @corymiller303#wpsessions And that typically means eating & drinking
  • 49. @corymiller303#wpsessions i.e. Monday lunches, monthly hangouts & bringing remote team to OKC
  • 50. @corymiller303#wpsessions Oh, and games
  • 51. @corymiller303#wpsessions 5. We are a Family on a JOURNEY together
  • 52. @corymiller303#wpsessions We share a common purpose, goal, vision
  • 53. @corymiller303#wpsessions The journey gives us stories to share
  • 54. @corymiller303#wpsessions Each person contributes to the journey uniquely
  • 55. @corymiller303#wpsessions What great things can we do together today?
  • 56. @corymiller303#wpsessions That’s the family I want to belong to
  • 57. @corymiller303#wpsessions We call it iThemes
