The nature of challenges facing business owners, entrepreneurs and leaders of small to medium enterprises (SME) include:

  •        High workloads they struggle to keep up with
  •        Working long hours
  •        Challenging targets
  •        Limited resources (funds and personnel)
  •        Insufficient returns from time invested (dollars earned versus hours input while balancing work, family and wellbeing)
  •        Questioning how sustainable it is for themselves and their team

The challenges impact headspace in such a way that it’s difficult for affected SME leaders to have clarity to determine and execute key priorities and achieve targeted outcomes.

SME leaders today need to be innovative experts who either disrupt industries or are responsive to disruption. It’s hard to do so when barely keeping up. A persona and culture of SME leaders corresponds to the impact they make.

Fall through the tipping point at reliable results in negative growth where culture can plunge to unintentionally sabotaging success. Alternatively, resourceful market leading visionaries lead a culture that finds a way to prosper no matter the circumstances.

 Now a good place to start is to locate on the Persona / Culture diagram:

  •        The level you feel best identifies you
  •        The level that best identifies your team
  •        The level key stakeholders might perceive you

It’s rare there’s consistency across the 3 ratings. Are you at the level you’d like to be? If not, then what are you going to do about it?

There’s plenty of challenges but most disappear if individuals and teams achieve and exceed targeted outcomes. How individuals work is fundamental to underpinning a team’s ability to succeed.

However, the problem is productivity is broken because until now there hasn’t been a flexible approach for individuals and teams to develop a rhythm of work that relieves pressure and achieves outcomes by leveraging their strengths and minimising their weaknesses. 

Working Rhythm

As the workplace changes, we need to continually refine our approach to productivity. But we are all different, with different needs, different preferences and different pressures. Modern productivity needs a more tailored and flexible approach. Yet, most workers don’t have a working rhythm to support them to excel in today’s busy, fast-paced and complex business environment.

Working Rhythm consists of:

Cadence – Effective Workflow: Focussing on efficiency and speed by establishing a foundation to enable work to be processed quickly and right first time. The outcome is a customized workflow for the individual.

Content – Work That Matters: To be successful in a specific role, this is where the individual determines what to classify as the key work that matters they need to plan, prioritise and action. The outcome is clarity and execution.

Collaboration – Working Together: Establishing key protocols (guiding principles) for work, tasks and activities to occur effectively across the group. The outcome is how the culture interacts.

Outcomes Include

  •        An efficient workflow aligned to how the individual works best (it's not a 1 size fits all approach)
  •        More time to action high impact important work (average improvement is 100 minutes a day)
  •        Strategies to deal with the daily interruptions that derail focus and limit output
  •        An effective way to manage email
  •        Proactive approach to planning prioritising and scheduling workload
  •        Increased clarity
  •        A scalable and sustainable way to work that embeds a culture of accountability and drives results
