Most companies call us when they feel worn down, they are working too hard and are not having fun any more. Many times it is because they are not as profitable as they would like to be based on the effort they put in, and often it is because they are having a hard time getting their employees to do the right things.
So when we engage with a company that has these concerns, we bring a four step process into play.
First we perform assessments to see how the ownership, management, and employees are working together. We use a tool called the “Profiles XT™ “ to look at Job matching and evaluate if people are in the right positions based on their interest and capabilities.
Next we develop position contracts to give everyone a clear understanding of what is expected of them and which activities they are responsible for. This ensures clearly defined roles and stops people from stepping on each other’s toes.
The third step in the process is developing a clearly understood organization chart with clearly defined reporting designations so that employees understand where they fit in the company and to whom they report.
The fourth step is to have the key players spend time working with a business simulation tool and train them no matter what their responsibilities are as to how the business makes money.
We use a tool that is a comprehensive “hands-on” workshop that takes a realistic look at talent challenge, work flow process and complexities of running a modern day organization. It recognizes the importance of talent deployment, employee engagement, driving efficiencies, cash flow, competition for skilled talent, and customer satisfaction and impact they have individually and collectively on the bottom line and in driving organizational excellence.
If you are looking to regain control of your business or would just like your team to have a better understanding of how the business works and their roles in contributing to the bottom line, give us a call at 508-946-2655.
