March 2011

With some signs of winter still around us, it is hard to believe that spring is just around the corner.  This time of year is usually filled with ideas and projects that are ready to bloom. As your business and its people notice some of the exciting challenges that lie ahead, we are ready to help.

Spring is a great time for people and business because the goals and financials for the new near have been set and it is now time to get into a new and energized groove.  I have a few ideas to help you set the tone for this important business quarter and settle into a comfort zone that is both focused and productive.

  1. Start a “parking lot” page or white board to keep track of problems or issues.
  2. Schedule a monthly staff meeting (30 minutes) to brainstorm ideas on new processes or procedures (especially if problems have been identified on the “parking lot”).
  3. Implement one of the new ideas for a month and assess its success at the next meeting.
