You may have built the company from the ground up or you may have been there since before it was even close to being the company is today, but I bet there are a few hidden treasures in your company that you didn’t know about. Not hiding in the boiler room or the basement, but right in front of you, in fact you probably greet half of these treasures on a daily basis. Pay attention and you will catch on quickly.
- There are better ways to get everything done. Believe it or not, some of your employees aren’t doing things exactly the way they were trained and this is actually very good for you. You might have to look around but I would be willing to bet that some of your employees have found ways to do things better and faster than how you taught them to. The only bad part about this whole situation is that some or most of your employees are wasting time doing things the way they were taught to do them. Invest the time in learning the new methods from your employees, because no one knows the job better than the people who do it full-time. Then you should invest the time to train the rest of the team and also let it be known that you are always looking for better ways to get things done.
