Would governments be as despised by their citizens if they actually helped their citizens and tried to meet or exceed their expectations? Instead of continually cutting services (and while I certainly don’t mind eliminating the gravy) it may be more appropriate and required to find ways to increase the revenue and improve the cash flow. We are starting to see cities and municipalities who are running out of cash declaring bankruptcy. You just can’t keep running on debt -- you need to increase the cash flow to meet the required expenses.
How do you get business growth in today’s turbulent times? With any successful organization it starts with engaged employees who strive each and every day to meet or exceed their clients / customer expectations. These employees create a positive environment for the customers creating a clientele that is more likely to return and purchase more services or product. These same engaged employees will work to meet all corporate objectives and deliver improved results because they clearly understand what is expected of them and the benefits of delivering superior results.
Procter and Gamble, West Jet, Apple all get it. Success is delivered through their employees and plenty of leadership time is focused on empowering these employees to improve results and create a positive consumer experience generating ever increasing cash flow. What are your thoughts on the importance of employees with respect to business growth?
