Indispensable

Many people feel they are indispensable in their work. For those of you who truly believe this, really give some thought to what would happen if you were to leave.

Would your organization completely fail?

Would your organization falter a bit and then find a replacement?

Would your organization keep moving forward with or without you?

Would your organization improve without you?

Many of the people who think they are indispensable are more likely delusional. They might be important to an organizational but almost everyone can be replaced.

Have a great day!

Call their bluff

When you hear something that sounds wonderful, be willing to call their bluff and ask for the data.

If they have the data then they prove their point and everyone is happy.

If they don’t have the data and are just bluffing, you are able to save a lot of time following someone down the wrong path.

Have a great day!

Excuses

It’s weird but people need a great reason to go out and do something but just the simplest excuse will give them a reason not to do something.

Shouldn’t we switch that around and make it easier to do things and harder to not do things?

Just a thought.

Have a great day!

Training

Companies and organizations spend a lot of money recruiting the right type of employees. Everything from background checks to in person interviews to EQ tests.

Sadly too many than throw their new hires into a situation without proper onboarding and training.

Without proper onboarding and training, even the best hires will frequently fail.

With proper onboarding and training you can take even a marginal hire and turn them into a great success for the company.

To me it seems like a no brainer to put a greater emphasis on training.

Have a great day!
