We’ve all seen it.
Companies that fail because of a lack of basic skills.
Maybe they don’t know how to treat customers. Or they don’t know how to use their time effectively. Or they don’t know how to deal with internal conflict.
So what happens?
Loss of money. Loss of morale. Wasted time. And for some, the closure of the business.
When your employees lack the skills they need, it leads to:
Wasted time at work (loss of productivity)
Loss of customers and potential customers
Poorer customer service
Loss of revenue and profits
You looking like an ineffective manager/boss/leader
Your employees face an enemy
We would like to think that our employees already know all the skills they need when we hire them.
All too often, however, they don’t.
And your employees may not even know they are missing those skills – because they were never taught what they were.
They are facing an enemy that we like to call the Void.
The Void is a force that lurks hidden in your employees and strikes unsuspectingly, often at the worst times. It creates extra stress, wasted time, friction in relationships, lower productivity, and lower profits.
What is The Void? It’s a knowledge gap.
What kind of skills could your employees be missing?
Conflict resolution skills
Time management and productivity skills
Goal setting skills
General work skills such as punctuality
Customer service skills
But you can help remedy that.
You can help give them the skills they need so they can not only improve your business, but their own lives.
How can you do that?
We have some options for you:
When your employees win, you win.
The more skilled your employees are:
The more productive they will be (which leads to less wasted time and more accomplished in less time).
The better the communication will be (which leads to more on-time projects, less redos, and less wasted time and resources).
The more profits and revenue your business will make.
The more resources your company will save.
The better your employees’ lives will be.
The more you will be seen as an effective manager/boss/leader.
