Traffic Jams

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

20140617_072938A massive change takes place in many parts of the world, usually at the end of August and in the month  of September. Schools, colleges and universities all re-open and thousands of workers go back to work after their summer holidays. They commute by car, bus, tram, tube, train, boat, cycles, motorcycles, some by ‘plane and some actually walk.

Apart from every single method of transport being very busy for about 3 to 4 hours in the morning and probably even longer in the evening, it doesn’t help productivity and the well-being of all those travelling.

Technology now allows work to be carried out anywhere, anytime, so why do we insist on asking people to commute every day. Why don’t we give people the tools to do their job, the support that they might need and trust them. There are various debates about how to do it and the right balance of support and ‘community’ but surely flexibility is a competitive advantage, not only to obtain and keep customers but also talent.

One of the most important business tools

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

20140617_072754I’ve just been talking to someone about business tools and which are important and which are just ‘nice to have’. The one area he had not considered was the tool of ‘time’.

We all have 24 hours in the day but how that time is used can make a massive difference on the success and growth of a business. We are in the main holiday season now and it’s easy to slip into ‘coasting’ mode as many of our contacts and customers are on holiday. This is though, a great opportunity to look at what we want to achieve before the end of December. We have the time to think and the time to plan, before everybody comes back from holiday and we find ourselves back in the ‘cut and thrust’ of the day to day operations.

Use this time wisely. Think, plan and of course enjoy the time and hopefully weather, to prepare.

But don’t forget to give you, your family and friends time as well. Life is not all work!
