Let me preface this by saying I am certainly not the healthiest person in the world. I have always tried to make reasonable diet decisions and get out to get some exercise. However, things such as kids, long work days and stress tend to get in the way. I want to share some recent changes I made and how pervasive those have been to my happiness at work, productivity and overall well-being in other areas of my life.
I do not fully trust my children. Now, before you recoil in outrage, hear me out. There are somethings where they have or will gain my trust, but there are some areas of life where I do not trust them and for good reason.
As a business leader we often hear the phrase, "you need to work on your business not in your business.”
In my previous post, 3 Indicators that your Process is Broken, I provided insight on how to identify when a process is broken. As a follow-up to that, this post focuses on the steps to take in order to fix a broken process that you have identified.
The majority of the clients I serve are businesses that are experiencing growth. While growth for a business is exciting, it can also be overwhelming if your processes can’t keep up with the demand.
