STRATEGY - Is your work day filled with lots of activities that pull you in a lot of different directions?
If you feel overworked and stressed, and the company is not performing well, the ideal place for you to start at this time is to focus on a high-level strategy. What’s needed is more structure and clear direction on a few critical goals to keep the entire team focused. This clarifies priorities and helps team members filter out the less important items. With fewer distractions, you are more efficient with your time and energy at work and will naturally achieve better results. Developing a clear strategy gives businesses a fresh start and helps them move forward faster! We help organizations gain a better perspective on where they want to be and create a concrete plan on how to get there.
PERSONAL COACHING - Do you have high aspirations for yourself and your career, but need help with a clear path to get there?
If you don’t like to feel stuck and want specific steps to get things moving, you would benefit most at this time from personal coaching. Take a firsthand journey to gain clarity about your strengths, uniqueness, and skillsets and how to harness them to achieve your full potential. Learn how to be intentional and efficient on your personal improvement path whether it’s focused on your career, leadership aspirations, or personal goals. Coaching sessions are private with personalized discussions, activities with built-in accountability, and experienced mentoring to guide you towards becoming the best version of yourself. We help clients develop and follow a pathway that is structured with deliverables yet flexible enough to meet individual goals.
If you and your team feel overwhelmed and you want to perform better, the best place to start would be with improvement workshops. You want things to be simpler and smoother. You know there has to be a better way of delivering exactly what’s needed, and you’re right! We help teams take an in-depth look at how things are currently accomplished and view them with a new perspective. You can begin to see where there are inefficiencies, steps that can be eliminated, and ways to accomplish the same work with fewer hiccups along the way. This is a great way to reduce waste, improve quality, and get time back in your day! In addition, you can improve quality with tools to ensure the work is correct before sending it to the next step. Improvement involves team goals and accountability so that everyone is working together for the best possible product or service. Progress at various levels can decrease frustration, reduce rework, improve resource utilization, and boost customer satisfaction!
TEAMWORK - Can you feel the weight of employees not getting along, constantly disagreeing, and being skeptical of each other?
It’s discouraging when problems grow, decisions don’t get made, and progress stops. Everyone is frustrated and it’s hard to get any work done. At this point, you would benefit most by focusing on improving teamwork in your area. When people work well together, the entire operation runs more smoothly; communication increases, respect grows, and staff stops playing the “blame game.” When employees work together, productivity increases and stress decreases. In addition, it helps improve morale and reduces turnover, which ends up saving a lot of time and money!
PROBLEM SOLVING - Are you aware of the problems that need to be fixed, but feel overwhelmed thinking about how to do it?
With a big problem, it’s difficult to know where to start, how to manage it, and how to sustain the solution. At this point, you would get the most benefit from in-depth problem solving. What helps is having a specific way to solve problems through a series of steps that guarantee a better outcome. A proven problem solving method can guide you through the toughest of problems with the tools and instructions you need to do it simply and repeatedly.
ORGANIZATION - Is your current work area stressful because it is unorganized, messy, and items are easily lost?
Many people get frustrated by trying to find what’s needed quickly and tasks taking much longer than they should. The best place to focus at this point would be workplace organization. Organizing the workplace removes clutter, frees up space, increases communication, and calms the atmosphere. Being able to locate what you need quickly will instantly give you back time in your day. It will also allow everyone using a shared space to accomplish tasks faster plus it makes it easier to train new people. Workplace organization includes tools, methods, and standards for creating an organized work space and keeping it that way. Lucky for you, this is a very quick and easy tool to learn and apply!
VALUE CALCULATIONS & ANALYSIS - Do you see improvements happening, but lack the methods to show the impact?
It can be frustrating to complete a lot of hard work and not know how to numerically show all that you and your team has accomplished. It can also be difficult to get things moving when you don’t have the measurements to show what needs the time and attention in the first place. The greatest benefit to you at this time would be to develop a system for value calculations and analysis. Value calculations and analysis includes concrete steps to calculate metrics, analyze them, create systems of collection, and sustain improvements.
It’s frustrating when nothing seems like it is completed the way it is supposed to be. Customers can get frustrated with the products/services they receive and how they vary in quality and timeliness. At the same time, important tasks can be overlooked and employees may not follow through. You would get the most benefit right now from creating a better system of standards with built-in accountability. It is important to develop standards that cover the best and safest way to perform work and get all employees to buy in to it. This standard sets-up clear expectations for employees and a level of quality and service the customer can consistently count on. Proven accountability methods need to be used that incorporate responsibility at multiple levels including leadership, team, and between peers. This even playing field helps work get accomplished accurately and timely, plus it also improves morale.
CULTURE - Can you feel an uneasy air in your workgroup from a lack of trust, poor communication, and a place where no one feels appreciated?
When the overall personality of your group is deteriorating and growing more distant, you want it to get better but are not sure what to do to help it. You would benefit most by improving the culture of your organization or team. There are tools and techniques with actions to counteract unhealthy cultures and improve employee engagement. There are many important elements for developing a healthy culture including a clear understanding of the group’s higher purpose and goals, trust, respect, appreciation, and more. These elements along with group surveys, participation, clear priorities, and action plans help get a team back on track toward a healthier culture. A healthier culture will ultimately boost productivity, increase morale, and produce better results.
