In a 6-part blog series I shared last December, you learned how to activate Powerful Insights, the 5Rs that deliver Rapid Results, effective ways to strip unnecessary costs out of your system by Obliterating Operational Sludge , the confidence to Fearlessly Price for Value, and two highly effective frameworks to trigger the Infinite ROI of Innovation, so you should have been all set to have a stellar year this year, right?
There’s only one problem. Did you actually download any of the resources? Watch the videos? Buy and read the book? … Or did you get stuck on good intentions for “someday”?
The T in the P.R.O.F.I+T Roadmap stands for Take Action to Trigger Transformation. And I am willing to invest 60 minutes of my own time with you to help you take action. Reach out. If you’re willing to take action, I can help you get what you want. If you’re not, there’s nothing I can do for you. What have you got to lose?
Here’s How to Turn Good Intentions Into Impact
Discipline comes when you have proven systems, tools, support, and the structure in your calendar to make the P.R.O.F.I+T Roadmap a process of ongoing improvement, not just another good intention. Those are available in my innovative 90-minutes-once-per-week “online university” – PROFITU.
Right now you have the proven system. You have a taste of the tools. What’s likely missing is the feet-to-fire support and the structure in your calendar.
You can stare at the TV screen all day long but you’ll never be able to change the channel to something more interesting, entertaining, and rewarding until you pick up the remote and push the buttons. The P.R.O.F.I+T Roadmap includes all the buttons you need to push. But will you do it?
You can continue to do what you’re doing today, and continue to get the same results. You can spend long days doing all the things that aren’t fun in your business and fail to see a positive impact.
Or you can get to where you need to be by getting support to double your Return on People (or more) in less than one year, in less time per week then you’re spending on email per day.
You can take action to shift your Customer Profitability Ratio simply by helping your people understand how their everyday behaviors impact each of your core profitability drivers. You can engage them to make the 20% shifts that will deliver 80% of the impact.
You can get out from behind your desk and have Value Creation Conversations with the customers who are keeping you in business, get insights from them that will drive every other strategy in your business, and create value that you will be richly rewarded for.
You can continue to stay behind your desk spending 40% of your time – 2 days every week – dealing with escalated issues of all kinds. Your customers will at some point look for greener pastures. Your staff will continue to burn out.
Or you can get to where you need to be and take action to leverage the 5Rs to create a proactive Profit Plan and see rapid results in about 90 minutes once a week – about the same amount of time that you’re spending on email everyday. I like that ROI!
You can continue to say the seven most limiting words in business: “we don’t have the budget for that.” Gen Y, Gen Z, and Millenials quickly move on when they hear “no.” They want more.
Or you can take action to free up cash and start saying yes to every good initiative that crosses your desk, by showing everyone in your company how to take small actions each day to obliterate the operational sludge that’s costing you millions.
You can bow to competitive pressures, try to scrape by on slim margins, and cross your fingers every time you submit an RFP.
Or you can get to where you need to be and learn how to fearlessly price for value, and add millions to your bottom line for every 1% you find.
You can keep innovation on your to-do list for “someday” and play copy-cat and catch-up to your competitors.
Or you can get to where you need to be and take action to innovate in low-cost, low-risk ways that are almost impossible for your competitors to copy, creating the wildcard for profitable growth that adds millions to your bottom line.
When You Take Action, Everything You Want is Within Reach
This is what’s been missing from your business – the roadmap and toolkit to get you there. You can use everything in this blog series to take action on your own and see results.
Or you can accelerate your results by embedding more discipline into your organization so that you’ll never have to reinvent the wheel and you’ll never fall off the wagon when things get busy or when you get distracted by bright shiny objects.
Will you step up, Take Action and finally be rewarded? Or will you go back to business as usual?
