If We Were Honest

If we were honest, we might have conversations like this one:

“Boy, you guys are really moving fast!”

“Yep.  With my boss, it’s all about speed.”

“But it doesn’t seem safe to go so quickly.  Aren’t you worried about that?”

“Nah.  Speed is easier to measure than safety.”

Too often we sacrifice what’s important for matrixes, spreedsheets, and rankings.  Not just safety.  Not just quality.  Not just customer service.

But why be honest about that when your raises, bonuses, and awards are all tied to easily quantifiable statistics, am I right?

Ineffective Effeciency

If you have a position that generates $10K a month for your business and you have your employee spreading their time between that role and another, it may seem like a decision made to maximize effeciency, but it sounds like you’re probably making a mistake.

Why not pay someone $10 an hour to take on those extra duties and let your first employee focus on maximizing their effectiveness?

Effeciency decisions that do not immediately consider the impact on the bottom line are simply ineffective.
