I believe there are days when a workplace can feel more like an “adult daycare” than an office.
In this first episode, I’ll show you the formula that has transformed many crazy workplaces into places that authentically earned their designations as “best places to work.”
Not just great cultures but performance cultures where everyone ties to profit daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly.
If you’re the kind of leader…
Who feels you have a good culture, but there are just a few people who “stir the pot” and bring in their drama.
I believe that when middle managers master management, the resulting breakthroughs are profound and sustainable.
In this episode, I’m going to share with you how to overcome what I call “the middle management breakdown”—the block that keeps executives’ dreams from being the reality executed by the front-line team members.
If you’re the kind of leader who worries that perhaps your managers act more like “individual contributors” and don’t do nearly enough to maximize the results of their team members, I’m going to give you some solid executable ideas to get some traction for your managers.
I believe progress begets progress and success begets success.
In this episode, I’ll show you how you can create a series of successes that open the way for even more impactful successes later on.
On the flipside, stumble once and all your hard work up until then could come tumbling down. I’ll show you how to avoid that eventuality too.
If you’re the kind of leader who is up at night thinking about how to drive through a stubborn performance barrier, listening to this will give you some solid steps to finally have that breakthrough.
I believe visibility of what matters DRIVES the changes that matter.
In this episode, I will show you how you can create results that matter—those that impact profitability through visibility systems.
If you’re the kind of leader who has every employee already aware of exactly what high performance looks like and you have complete visibility on how every employee is doing on the important things that matter, stay tuned because I’ll share with you another, higher level of performance enhancement.
If instead, you don’t really know how every employee is performing every week AND if the ones who look busiest aren’t really the ones that drive profit,
I believe almost every person can DOUBLE their productivity at work.
In this episode, I’m going to share with you a process I have used over and over again to not only double but often times quadruple the profit per employee within a few years!
If you’re the kind of executive who feels like your people are already performing…well, you’ll be delighted to see that often those people are the fastest to double and quadruple their productivity.
Or maybe you are one who believes some of your people are on “corporate welfare” and you’ve had it.
I believe hard work should be rewarded with financial gains.
In this first video and the rest of this five-part series on accountability, I’m going to share with you how to get more accountability from your team members for the things that move the profit needle.
If you’re the kind of leader who has been preaching from the mountain top to your team that they need to “get it together” on accountability, but you feel like you might be mocked as the village idiot soon because it’s not working, you’re going to love this because you CAN break that pattern.
During challenging times, the one thing you can count on is that desperate competitors and fly-by-night organizations are going to come in and try to take away your best customers.
Let’s face it, your top 100 customers, for any bank under $2-billion asset size, account for anywhere between 50 to 140% of your profits.
That’s a significant thing to understand. They are precious. They pay for all the bills, and you must, of course, keep all of them.
I don’t know about you, but I loved the movie The Founder, probably because I’ve been a systems thinker all of my life, and I truly believe there’s one way that’s the best way to do everything.
I believe that when you obsess over how to get the fastest way from A to B in everything that you do in your business, things begin to really shine quickly. (more…)
A dear friend asked me a question one time, “Oh really, can you afford not to?”
And I thought that was one of the most brilliant questions I’ve ever heard.
Let me pose it to you this way.
Can you afford not to figure out how to increase your net interest margin by 100 basis points while bringing down your cost of funds and bringing up the quality of the loans you’re making?
I am a nerd. I’ve always been a nerd.
When I was a little kid, I used to go to the library every other day and I would drag books all the way up to my chin back onto the bus and back off of the bus, then back to the library. I’d fill up with books about twice a week.
I’ve always had a passion for learning and discovering and finding out what other people know—rather than having to discover everything myself. I have some favorite books. One of them, I think, is really important during strategic planning season for your executive team to get their brain unlocked from where it has been,
