If you want high potential company, you need to create systems on which the whole work will depend. Your company is a system, and this system requires subsystems to operate normally.
If the systems are made before hiring the majority of the team, it becomes a part of their training, culture, part of their job…they know from day one that SOPs are the norms.
We as business owners must have a firm belief in the concept of SYSTEMS, the importance of the B quadrant and a firm belief in the systems made for the organization.
The systems ideally must be made by the team of top management, so they own the system and are not compelled to use it as an order.
We as business owners will have to be very firm, yet friendly and clearly understand the difference between a genuine request v/s emotional blackmail or lack of drive to follow the systems.
We as business owners will have to show that systems are more important than short term sales, results and profits in general…we too have to be bound by the system.
Two things drive a living being – either DREAMS or FEAR…meaning, either the systems have to be benefiting the team and/or there should be a fear factor of losing the job.
Systems are the ultimate method of turning a struggling business into a well-oiled machine. You can systematize virtual anything in your business. Every single system has the potential to reduce your mental load, free up time, overcome hurdles, and enhance your progress.
