An Organization Is Only as Good as the People Who Run It. 

 

Are You Getting the Best from Your Most Valuable Asset?

 

Practically every company in the industrialized world is overpaying for its most valuable asset; not because its people aren’t giving it their all, but because "dysfunctional workplaces" have become the status quo.

We’ve come to accept Information Overload (the misuse of email, careless communication practices, multitasking and incessant interruptions) as a normal part of our working day. We're genuinely busy … but not necessarily productive.

In fact research consistently shows that this dysfunction results in a knowledge-worker (someone who processes and communicates information to produce value) unwittingly wasting more than 8-hours of time each and every week ... and this is just the tip of the iceberg!  

The dirty little secret of Information Overload is that it has become a significant problem for companies of all sizes. The problem is that they simply don’t know it.

Even smaller companies lose tens of millions of dollars each year in lowered productivity and hampered innovation, while the world’s largest corporations each face an annual exposure of a billion dollars or more!

People Are Not an Organization’s Most Valuable Asset … 

Thinking People Are Its Most Valuable Asset  

During the rise of the Industrial Revolution the worker was a cost of doing business. Today's knowledge-worker is the means of doing business ... so you hire the brightest people and the best minds for their ability to think and solve problems, but in a workplace that's not functioning at its best, people can’t come anywhere near their potential.

How do you put a price on that great idea that never materialized because of harried, hurried thinking, or that inspired conversation that could have happened, but didn’t because it fizzled into an easier and ineffective email instead?

 

Overcome Dysfunction and You'll Gain the Competitive Advantage  

An overriding problem that most of us struggle with is that we've become reactive rather than proactive; we have almost no uninterrupted work time––time that is essential to creativity, innovation and problem solving … the very essence of a knowledge-worker’s value.

But it doesn't have to be this way, the people in your organization can learn to take back full control of their time and attention, which is the single greatest catalyst to better performance, job satisfaction and increased productivity imaginable. 

 

A proactive, time-sensitive employee will be a far greater contributor to your organization’s bottom line than the worker who is hobbled by reactivity, distraction and stress.
