Importance of Good Leadership

Do you know the importance of good leadership?

Do you know the importance of good leadership?

Leaders are someone people look to for guidance, and it’s no different when it comes to the success of your business. Quality leadership can lead to positive benefits for your company including high employee morale, retaining valuable employees, and contribute to your business’s long-term growth and success. So if you’re looking to find out what makes a good leader, check out tips like:

  • Be Goal Oriented– Rather than dwelling on problems, a good leader will figure out what the solution is, and come up with a plan with detailed objects for achieving goals. Working towards common goals helps keep your team focused and builds comradery.
  • Lead by Example– Having a “do as I say, not as I do” approach can set a poor example for your employees and have a negative impact on your team’s morale. A good leader is one who wouldn’t ask anything of their employees that they themselves were not willing to do, which can play a big role in earning your employees respect and loyalty.
  • Take Responsibility– Nothing saps team morale than pointing fingers and blaming others. Being willing to take responsibility is a good way to earn trust and respect.
  • Communicate Effectively– It’s important to make sure that what you say is easily understood, but communication is also a two-way street. Making sure your employees know you’re willing to listen to feedback can be key to your business’s success.
  • Develop Your Team– A good leader can help foster team growth with training, coaching, and teaching team members the skills they need to succeed. Building your team up and encouraging them to do their best can be a positive motivating factor that helps your business succeed.
  • Share Success– A boss who takes credit for the hard work of their team does little to inspire them to work hard and help the business succeed. Recognizing your team’s achievements and sharing the glory can build a more productive and cohesive team.
  • Keep Striving to Improve– Great leaders know that their work is never done, that’s why they’re constantly finding new ways to learn and improve. Whether it’s developing new skills or something to work on, it’s important to be open to new ideas.

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Wayne Holliday & Tommy Houk | Pestmaster® Services of Lake City & Gainesville, FL

In today’s pest control business environment, we all need some sort of competitive edge and Pestmaster has definitely given us the edge we needed to set us apart from the competition.

Bart Van Diepen | Pestmaster® Services of Northern San Diego, CA

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster® Services of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster Services franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster® Services of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster Services. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster® Services of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster Services. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster® Services of Central New York

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”

Justin Kendall | Pestmaster® Services of Virginia Beach, Virginia

I would like to take a minute and thank you all for the incredible hospitality you all showed me.  You all contributed to a successful experience for me and I hope I can make you all proud by building a successful business in the mountains of PA and the suburbs of NJ.  Thank you again, this trip was a huge success and it would have not been possible without each and every one of you.

Tony Cuiffo | Pestmaster® Services of New Jersey & Pennsylvania

When we met with the franchisor, Jeff Van Diepen, we saw how involved he was with the franchises while also running some of the operations himself. Jeff was very in tune with how to run a successful franchise and was more than willing to put the time in to show that to the franchisees. I just can’t say enough about how Jeff and his team go to work each and every day to be better than the day before and how they bring that to the franchisees every day.
