Does Your Business Need a Reboot?
If you have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to streamline your business and increase your profits, this is it.
How many times have you longed for increased productivity, for yourself or for your team? The most common loss-of-productivity complaints come with subjects like ‘too many emails,’ ‘endless meetings,’ and the dreaded to-do list that never seems to reach its finish line. At the end of the day, we’re slammed, buried and overwhelmed, and optimizing productivity seems like a rather far-out “nice to do” instead of a reality.
Solving for lost productivity would be an easy thing to do if we were only focusing on our own plate of responsibilities, right? But, we live in a networked and highly complex world. Therefore, our productivity problems rarely ever exist just on our plate, they’re being dished out from a buffet of other sources, too. So, how can we apply simple fixes to a complex issue?
Some teams opt to create a la carte communication channels appropriate to the situation, rather than having only one channel for all communication. For example, Slack can be used as an instant messaging solution for your teammates to communicate in the moment. This is especially helpful for frontline employees who may need quick answers while working with your clients. With this in place, less urgent or timely communication can be rerouted to your inbox so you can respond as it’s feasible.

Closing out a year brings a sort of reflective energy to it. Did we achieve what we wanted to? Where did we fall short? What can we do to make sure we do/don’t do that [insert something here] again next year? Each of these questions relates back your strategy. But maybe not the one you’re thinking of.
The reality is that the businesses that pivot and keep going during this time are the ones that are going to come out alive and thriving on the other side. How can you pivot and be innovative?
