Key Components Businesses Need to Succeed in Remote Work

Key Components Businesses Need for Successful Remote Work

We are several weeks into Covid-19 restrictions, and while many states across the country are beginning to relax some restrictions, remote work is a change that many experts think is here to stay.  President of Global Workplace Analytics Kate Lister said of remote work: “The coronavirus is going to be a tipping point. We plodded along at about 10% growth a year for the last 10 years, but I foresee that this is going to really accelerate the trend.”  MarketWatch predicted that remote work...

Do You Need a Consultant or a Trainer?

Do You Need a Consultant or a Trainer?

I love a good deal. And really, who doesn’t? Getting an item you want at a great price is cause for celebration. I have learned over the years what items I can buy for cheap that are still great. Store-brand potato chips taste just as good as the name brand, and I still can’t eat just one. I have also learned what things I should invest more money in to get a far superior product. Shoes are like that. If you buy a pair of shoes from a discount store, you can bet your feet will be killing...

4 Strategies to Use Your Time Wisely

I’m sure you have heard the saying “Time is the only limited resource.” You can make more money. You can hire more people. You can get more customers. But you will never get more than 24 hours in a day. And, I’ve seen several memes on the internet that encourage us to hustle more. After all, we have the same 24 hours in a day as Oprah, Bill Gates, or Warren Buffet, right? Hustle is not the solution to the finite nature of time. Using wisdom in how we spend our days and hours...

Reap the Benefits of Bringing Gratitude to Work

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and with it comes the kickoff to the holiday season. Thanksgiving can be unappreciated because we move straight from Halloween to Christmas. We can easily treat Thanksgiving like a day full of food in the middle. In my family, two of the things we enjoy most on Thanksgiving are watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and The National Dog Show. Now don’t get me wrong, entertainment and food are great, but shouldn’t Thanksgiving be more? Thanksgiving...

Don’t Make the Mistake of Trying DIY

Have you ever watched Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper and thought, “I could do that.” An eye for design, some demo, and poof: a masterpiece. How hard could it be? Because DIY is the craze now, right? That’s exactly how I meet a lot of my clients. They have tried the DIY method of implementing new project management software and created a mess that they can’t clean up themselves. And it’s not their fault.

Leader, You Set The Tone for Change

Change is something we all struggle with, personally and professionally. Many resist it, which makes it more painful. Some of us are set in our ways, and some are paralyzed by fear of the unknown and what if’s. My family is facing some big changes right now, changes that I can’t say I’m excited about. Our daughter moves away to college in just a few short days. It seems like just yesterday she was starting kindergarten. At the same time, our son is starting his sophomore year at a...

The Perfect Tool Won’t Solve Your Problems

Whether it’s in our personal or professional lives, many of us keep looking for the perfect tool. We try different planners, different apps and different software, thinking there is something out there that will help us get organized. In the agency world, the same thing occurs. Everyone is looking for the perfect project management tool that will solve all their problems. We get calls all the time from prospects who are switching from one tool to another because the old one isn’t “able...

Employee Buy-In

Why Getting Employee Buy-In is Worth Your Time

There is a never-ending list of things successful agencies must always be working on. Completing high-quality, on-time work for your clients. Pitching new clients.

Isn’t it enough to just have a work environment that your employees enjoy? No, it’s not. When you have the buy-in of your employees, they feel essential to achieving the company’s vision...

Ditch Mediocrity by Training Your Team

Even if you’ve never read Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers, you have probably heard his finding that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become a world-class expert or master of any craft. Ten thousand hours seems like a lot, but that’s to be a master. If you only want to be mediocre, it doesn’t take anywhere near 10,000 hours. But you don’t want a mediocre agency, mediocre employees or mediocre results. Avoiding mediocrity requires a commitment to training and development. I...

Put Your People First to Be Successful

If you have ever worked with me, you’ve probably heard my philosophy: People. Then process. Then product. This should never be in any other order. Why should your people be first? If you don’t put your people first, everything else will fail. People drive process. And, if you think about it, your people are your product. It’s their ideas, their words and their art that you are selling to clients. If you get the people part right, making them your most valuable asset, the output you...
