Putting out fires and teammate drama, cripples profits, sends people packing and wrecks your day. With the Business Run Better step-by-step process you prevent fires and align your teams. Profits soar, teammates become recruiters and you get your life back.
Now we know the next question is always “But how do you do that?” But before we go there, let’s talk about real results.
- Net profit goes up 432% in just three years in a business over 100 years old.
- Another business sees a 30% reduction in its workforce…and chooses not to hire replacements because they are getting so much more done with less.
- Employee profit sharing bonus goes up 300% in 3 years.
- Late orders go from a list 3 pages long to just 3 late orders – in just 6 weeks!
- Another manufacturer reduces late order from 750 to 250 in 6 weeks. No additional people and no additional equipment.
- A direct service provider improved number or people served and bottom line, through the Covid shutdown!
- Employee survey shows satisfaction and employer appreciation goes from 55% to 86% in 1 year.
Not everyone sees results this amazing, but it’s pretty close.
So how do we do that? Well, first of all, we don’t, you do. We provide tools and act as a guide, but you are make the difference. We’re happy to be Obi-Wan Kenobe so you can be Luke Skywalker. Our tools and coaching absolutely go hand-in-hand, like a light sabre and Old Ben’s instructions (last Star Wars reference, I promise). So every step of the way you are given a tool, and taught how to use it well.
- TIME: We get you the time to Think, Plan and Lead instead of just put out fires. It’s pretty simple really, but when you run the right meeting with the right tools and the right people, you can gain each person 4-9 hours per week – yeah, every week. The meeting get you on the offense and preventing fires instead of just putting them out. The meeting manager and training alone will often cut the late orders in half at a manufacturer.
- CLARITY: Then we guide you to clarify what you do, how you do it and why. It may seem obvious, but when that is linked in a change from to how you will measure success to how each department measures success and what they do, eventually ending with each person’s roles and responsibilities, what is achieved is called Core Team Alignment , and you have probably never experienced anything like it. It’s what leads football teams to win 3 Super Bowls in 5 years, or 5 NBA championships, or Seal teams to do the impossible almost unnoticed. Alignment is so important and misunderstood the next article is simply all about it.
- RESULTS: Get Work Done! In the end, you will get results, and probably better results than you imagine. It all comes from reaching Core Team Alignment and adding in Systematic Accountability. You’ll know it when you see and it will feel sooooo right. Work goes from being a required place of misery to being an oasis of fulfillment and accomplishment. Take a vacation and not worry about a thing.
So that’s the big picture and the plan. It’s you and your team’s adventure, all we do is act as a guide. Come on – make Peter Pan jealous!
