Standard Problems

Running a business is hard work; whether it is keeping the sales funnel full, finding the best person for the job, or keeping your costs under control, having and being able to maximise on profits year after year is tough yet essential.
Our experiences have shown that the following puzzle pieces provide lists of common causes that inhibit consistent quality productivity.

  • Communication in its many forms is the number one problem in business & society today. Although some people and organizations are better than others, actively explaining and discussing perspectives and requirements is paramount.
  • This topic is one of the largest time wasters in the daily activity of many organizations. This is an all-inclusive problem that, if not developed properly, the side effects can be very costly. Helping team members understand the complete process only has an upside.
  • Organizations have a tendency to be on both sides of the fence on this issue. While some companies believe 100% in training, others have a fear that if they spend profits on training, the people will leave, so their training budgets become nonexistent. Do you hire the person or the job description?
  • Although most people have an understanding of what their responsibilities are, there are challenges with the finer details of what is really required.
  • From the book “Good to Great”, understanding and defining each “seat on the bus” is an important step to creating progressive & productive cultures. The challenge is that these definitions are subjective between managers, supervisors and staff. Removing the subjectivity is an area that is not easily solved, as most often personnel feelings interfere with collaborative conversations.
  • These two words are very powerful, as the natural tendency for some is to build, or expand on their level of importance, to the detriment of others. This practice results in people working in silos and becoming proprietary to their work. [Checking their egos at the door] is a great saying, yet difficult for some to do.
  • During tough times, like we are in right now, makes it difficult as we are all expected to do more with less. The effects of doing so has many negative side effects, especially when you throw in the appreciation value.
  • This is a very hot topic, especially when you throw in the generation, education and experience cards. Worker standards, energy and requirements become important topics of conversation. Who is the smart person, the one that works their butt off, or the person that spends most of their time at the water cooler chatting it up. Let your conscience guide you.
