Couldn't agree more..but how many people do it... even managers/leaders are guilty. People's time is valuable..at all levels..if your going to have a meeting at least mutually respect their time. I always had a rule that everyone had to turn their phones off and put them away. Have an agenda sent prior to the meeting so everyone could come prepared to add value. Thanks everyone for your feedback. It is good to know that I am not alone in this view. Great article!"
Thanks Heather. I couldn't agree more...especially as small business owners where each individual is required to do more with less... It is critical that the right fit for the business and individual is met. The hiring process is often rushed or not well though out... but is one of the most critical processes you can focus on. Hope our community finds this helpful."
This is one of those important points in organizational life-cycle. Few get to growth, and even fewer can get past that critical mass of start-up into full blown operations where formalized process, etc are needed to effectively manage the organization. Far too often small businesses don't put the necessary infrastructure/tools in place early enough to get enough breakthrough velocity to promote their business past start up and ultimately fail. Good luck to you and your client, we wish them luck and hope we can get some updates on progress/lessons learned. Thanks "
My pleasure Christina. Anything we can do to support the small business community. We all face the challenge of juggling multiple priorities.. No one knows this better than small biz owners who are forced to wear multiple hats to bring it together. Prioritize, stay focused and be persistent."
