An Organization Is Only as Good as the People Who Run It.
So 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 the misuse of email, careless communication practices, and incessant interruptions as a normal part of our working day. We're living lives of reaction, which makes us genuinely busy … but not necessarily productive.
Studies consistantly show that this dysfunction results in a knowledge worker unwittingly wasting more than eight hours of time each and every week ... and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
People Are Not an Organization’s Most Valuable Asset …
Thinking People Are Its Most Valuable Asset
You hire the brightest people and the best minds for their ability to think, solve problems and create value, 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 ineffective email instead?
Keeping Your Most Valuable Asset
Research shows that nearly one third of employees plan to move jobs within the next five years. Invariably they’re the best of the bunch, the ones who really have the most to give so they’ll be snatched up by the competition. To gain or maintain the competitive advantage organizations need to keep their best people, to have them choose to stay in preference to any other opportunity.
Overcoming Dysfunction to Gain the Competitive Advantage
The overriding problem in many workplaces is that we've become desensitized to the value of our most precious assets; our time, our focus and our attention.
However, if the people in your organization can learn to recognize, and then overcome the crippling symptoms of miscommunication, multitasking and information-overload (and they can), you'll find it to be the single greatest catalyst to 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.
If you feel that your organization may be experiencing any of these challenges it doesn't have to.
