24 - How to Make Sure All Team Members Feel Important and Motivated with Peter Masone

As you start to grow your team, you will notice that there are two types of team members within your business; those who work directly with your customers and those who function behind the scenes. Both are essential to moving your business forward and serving your clients, but the one set gets no external recognition because the customer doesn’t really know they are there.

However, as the business owner, you know that both types of team members are important to your company’s success and that the show cannot go on without either set. The question is, how do you ensure all team members feel valued and motivated?

Peter Masone is very familiar with this problem. From a background in theater and stage music, to 20 years in the construction industry, to now the General Manager of a sports team, the Tampa Bay Cannons, Peter knows how essential the behind-the-scenes team is to the final product. In this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast, Peter shares his tips on how to build a team from the ground up and how to keep all team members feeling like they are essential, no matter their role.
