A Companies greatest asset is the hearts and minds of their people. Your people must be healthy, happy and feel prosperous to really contribute to your success.
So, let us look at what you need to do to really make your business take off.
The First thing you need to do is free your mind and the minds of all your team of clutter. Clutter is stagnating energy … pulling you your team and your profits down down down.
So, identify the clutter: – Where is it? What is it?
Is it Physical? Take a walk around your building, can you see it? How many filing cabinets do you have? Look at people’s desktops, in corners, on shelves, under desks, in draws in cupboards – where is your clutter?
Is it Digital? Look at your computer network, your web site, your databases, your account coding and systems etc.
Is it Emotional? Are your team happy? Do they love their job? When was the last time you did team happiness survey – did you get high team satisfaction %
Are you one of the Sunday Times best companies to work for?
I ran a global manufacturing company for 30 years, but it did not truly succeed until we did a business detox. Three years later – sales doubled and profits were admirable.
Figures in £ millions
Year Loss 1 2 3 4
Sales £20 £25 £37 £45 £54
PBT (£0.5 ) £1 £2 £4 £5
We achieved the above by following the procedure below. and wow it worked.
So How? you ask – well you first need to be strong and full of passion to achieve your goal.
So, ensure you are personally ready to lead your team to a new world – of sensational success.
Get yourself physically and mentally fit.
Mentally – I recommend enrolling on one of Anthony Robbins Courses E.g. Unleash the power within (3-day motivational injection) or invest in a personal coach to hold your hand through the process Your coach will give you clarity and passion. I used a great guy called John Woodruffe who then called himself a Process Improvement Practitioner.
Physically – a good personal detox would kick start you – I suggest you go to www.kamalaya.com in Thailand – wow this will kick start your health and wellbeing. There are many detox centres in UK and in Europe now … Jason Vale has one in Portugal and Turkey … where you can do a one week healthy Juice Detox. I have also been on Amanda Hamilton detox retreat
So, you are now ready, you feel amazing and are ready for action.
So, let’s get this detox started.
Business Detox Methodology.
First Challenge and Clarify
Challenge your team and your customers – as they have the answers.
Ask questions like What is preventing higher Sales?
What is preventing profit growth?
I suggest you do a team happiness survey – which will expose problem areas which need detoxing.
Clarify – summarize all your findings and develop a clear plan to give clarity to your team of exactly what needs detoxifying. Work with and support your team to make it happen.
