How To Be A Better Business Leader

By | Tips Bisnes | No Comments

Everybody knows that as entrepreneurs, you need to wear many hats. You’re often accountable for a wide range of responsibilities, from marketing and business development to accounting and inventory control. As the business grows and begins to see some cash flow, entrepreneurs are encouraged to get help with the tasks that they either cannot do well or that do not utilize their core strengths. Having a well-developed leadership is also critical for success.

Once you begin hiring, you need to understand the importance of being a good leader. If you can do that, you will save your time and money rehiring and retraining for the same positions, and you will create a culture where people always want to do their best. Here are some of the tips for becoming a good business leader.

1. Work with your team, not just over them.

The best leaders work alongside those they lead, if not always, then periodically. In an entrepreneurial context, this means getting your hands dirty by taking over the social media now and then, helping to produce content for your business’s blog, answering some customer service request yourself or speaking with customers about what they love or don’t love about your product or service. By doing the work they do, you will fully understand the people you lead and how you should lead them.

2. Be humble.

Nobody wants to work for somebody who is stuck up and so full of themselves. Instead, it is beneficial for all parties if a leader can acknowledge when they make a mistake, then allowing their team to learn from the mistake instead of blaming their team for their own mistake. Great leaders should not be afraid to admit they are not perfect. When you are humble enough to share your obstacles and the ways in which you have overcome those obstacles with your team, you will strengthen the business and build a more unified culture.

3. Understand that no one is perfect.

A successful leader pushes their team to strive for greatness but is not quick to judge or rebuke if that greatness is not achieved immediately. Instead, the leader helps their team build up existing skills and create new ones. When someone made a mistake, help them learn from that mistake instead of just judging and scolding them for messing up. Progress takes patience and a good leader understands that.

4. Assess how people perceive you.

Your reputation at your workplace can affect the way your team operates, be sure to check in now and then to make sure your perception matches your goals. Be yourself, but be aware of how your team’s and the public’s perceptions of you affect your business.

5. Don’t waste people’s time.

Find ways to communicate with your team that are fast and effortless. Allow your employees to work the ways they find efficient for them. The more you show that you respect others’ time, the more your team will strive to meet your common goals and the faster you will get there with your team next to you giving you the ultimate support.

These are the most common and basic things you need to know to be a better leader for your business. If you practice these tips at work, it will ensure that your business can grow as big as dream it to be. The most important thing is trust when being a leader in business. If you don’t have that, your team won’t even trust you to take care of them and you will forever be stuck in a loop of people coming and going.

9 Steps to Prepare for Your Job Interview l HildeGroup.com

1. Do some research on the company & the job position you are applying

Before going for the interview, make sure you do some research first so that you will be seen as well prepared. Write down any questions you may have about the company or the job position so you can ask during the interview. It will look better when you go into the interview with intelligent questions. It shows that you put an effort in preparing for the interview.

2. Pick out what you are going to wear

What you wear to the interview is a crucial part of preparing for a job interview. Pick out something that portrays confidence and positivity. Avoid wearing dull colours or colours that are too bright. After you have chosen your outfit, make sure it is cleaned and pressed and you have the appropriate accessories and shoes to go with it.

3. Study your resume

Any work experience or skills that you have listed on your resume are a fair game to talk about during the interview. Your resume is all the interviewer has to go by in order to get to know you. They may pick things out from your resume and ask you to elaborate more on it. Make sure you know everything by heart so that you won’t be surprised when you are asked certain questions. This is the one step that you may not want to skip in preparing for your job interview.

4. Practice your answers to the most common interview questions

For this particular step, you’ll want to have your answers ready and maybe practice them a few times before your job interview. You should always be able to answer the most common questions like “Tell me about yourself” and “Why do you think you would be great for this job?” it is up to you to sell yourself to the interviewer.

Avoid memorising your answers so they come out rehearsed, but have a clear idea of what you are going to say. When you are asked a question, you want your answers to come out natural. Be open to other questions as well and really know what you can offer to the company.

5. Pay attention to non-verbal communication

Be mindful because non-verbal communications speak volume. Remember that waiting room behaviours may be reported. During the interview, remember to smile. establish eye contact and use a firm handshake. Sit up straight yet comfortably. Be aware of nervous gestures such as foot-tapping and pen clicking. Do not stare at your interviewer but try to maintain good eye contact while addressing all aspects of an interviewer’s questions. Lastly, manage your facial expressions. Facial expressions provide clues to your feelings. Manage how you react and project a positive image.

6. Listen & ask questions

During the job interview, listening is just as important as answering questions. If you are not paying attention, you are not going to be able to give a good response. It is important to listen to what the interviewer is saying so that you can give an appropriate answer. Be ready to engage with the interviewer. You would want to have a two-way communication so that you can build a relationship with the interviewer rather than just providing a response to the questions. Be ready with your own set of questions to ask the interviewer.

7. Find out the type of interview you will be going on

There are several common types of interviews such as the traditional one on one interview, panel interview, group interview and behavioural interview. You should not just assume the kind of interview that you will get. Don’t be afraid to ask your recruiter what kind of interview you will have.

8. Find the directions to the interview & be on time

Allow enough time to get there and anticipate traffic. it is okay to be at least 10 minutes early but no more than that. Otherwise, the interviewer might not be ready for you. Bring the phone number of your interviewer just in case you got lost or if you are going to be late.

9. Follow up with a thank you note

Follow up a job interview with a thank you note emphasising your interest with the job. Consider your thank you letter as a follow-up “sales” letter. Restate why you want the job and what you can contribute to the company. This thank you letter is the perfect opportunity to discuss anything of importance that your interviewer forgot to ask or any inquiries you have on the job position that you forgot to ask.

9 Steps to Getting a Perfect Wedding Hall l HildeGroup.com

Your big day is coming up real soon. You can’t wait to make it official. Both family and friends are excited to be a part of your big day. You want everything to be perfect. Weddings are about many intangible moments. A successful wedding reception depends on the choices you make. The wedding venue is the most crucial element which requires careful attention.

So, before the big day comes, make a wise choice and choose a perfect wedding hall to impress your attendees. Here are a few steps to guide you to choose the right wedding hall for your special day.

9 Steps to Getting a Perfect Wedding Hall l HildeGroup.com

1. Define your budget

Wedding planning comes with a lot of excitement. To avoid going over budget, map out the elements and list out a budget. Pen down the intricate elements ‘decoration’, ‘food’, and ‘photography’. By listing out a budget, it can assist you in choosing an amazing venue with a great service. Budget means an approximation of expenses that are allowed on each occasion. Before anything else, know the maximum amount that you can spend. After that, decide the location where the event has to occur. Look for offers online on wedding halls that are available. Lastly, choose the best option that is within your budget.

2. Evaluate the location

Location is an essential aspect when finalizing the wedding venue. The location should have ample space for organizing various events. For a local wedding, choose a venue which is easily reachable and accessible for the guests. The location should have ample parking space. Most of the time, venue booking is done without studying the locations. One needs to visit the site before finalizing the location to host an event.

Always select a wedding hall which has the following facilities:

  • Ample parking space
  • Venue can be located via GPS for attendees
  • Size accommodations
  • Great food options

3. Conduct proper research

Reading past reviews can help you decide which venues are worth exploring and which ones have red flags you should address when talking with the event coordinators. Banquet Halls illustrated online have customer reviews and ratings available. Most of them are genuine and can be relied upon.  Reviews can also offer information you might not have considered such as the value others received from hosting their wedding reception at a particular banquet hall. List out what’s special about each venue and then make a decision based on your budget and goals.

4. A roomy fit

It may sound obvious, but you need to make sure the room is large enough to accommodate the number of people on your guest list. The wedding hall may look enormous when it is empty, but wedding essentials, tables, chairs, a buffet, band or DJ setup, will fill it quickly. The best way to assess the size of a site is to go see it when another wedding reception with an equivalent guest list size is all set up.

5. Evaluate the wedding hall

Here are some of the things to look out for when evaluating the wedding hall:

  • Catering Services: Choose banquets with affordable catering services and unconventional food choices. You can even ask for customized decorated fruits corners. Drinks, cocktails can be arranged on demand. Any celebration is incomplete without the scrumptious sweets.
  •  Additional Services: Additional services includes valet parking, Wedding DJ, bridal makeup and more. Some banquet chains have an online specialist who takes care of the additional services bookings. Utilize their resourceful networks to get more facilities.
  • Safety Measures: When a lot of people are involved in a chaotic environment, a lot of things can go wrong. To keep the mishaps at bay, there are venues with appropriate safety measures. So you can be at peace of mind, first aid, fire safety, and emergency services should be on standby. Emergency power backup in case of unwanted power cuts is an additional facility. CCTV cameras should be allocated in the event space for venue safety.

7. Check for backup plans

When organizing any kind of events, it is essential to have a backup plan in case anything goes awry. The most common problem that could happen during a wedding reception is the unexpected rise in the number of guests. Wedding planners encounter big and small challenges all the time. Arranging extra food, extra parking space, or even additional seats is never a challenge.

8. Book it well in advance

Last minute bookings may lead to other problems. Once you have set your wedding date, go ahead with pre-booking your wedding hall. The availability of banquet halls may vary depending upon the peak season demand. To be on track, it is recommended to book the venue six months prior to your date. Last minute bookings may cause you to lose great deals. If you book in advance, you will be able to save a lot.

9. Know your guest’s profile

Transportation and stay have always been a big issue. It is important to know your guest’s profiles. If it is a local gathering, guest will most probably use their own vehicles. All they will need is a parking space. For guests who live far away, you need to arrange for their pick, drop and stay.

Make a rough count of locals and outstation attendees so that it is easy for you to plan their stay.
