Everyone talks about climbing up the proverbial ladder in order to be successful. There are many ways to do this; however, managers and executives are finding out in 2013 that the corporate ladder is not exactly the way to run a company if they are looking for financial success in today’s marketplace.
Efficiency comes from teamwork. Yes, this is an old ingredient that has been around for a good, long time in the business world. But the definition of teamwork has now changed from managers simply handing down tasks to others – to managers working with their employees in order to achieve their goals.
Robert S. Block is the man who created Whole Business Thinking, which is a concept that will soon become the foundation for all businesses. Whole Business Thinking is the common sense approach where managers take a step back, analyze the issues and problems they are facing, and work hands-on with their employees to implement alternative strategies that need everyone’s skill and expertise in order to work.
When employees are hired for various departments, they come into the company with job descriptions in hand. However, with the ever-expanding world of social media and networking, it is the manger’s job to also be a ‘voice’ that is both loud and clear, reaching out to customers in order to satisfy their target audience and increase ROI.
Strategists, analysts, social media gurus, real-time content providers, and even face-to-face networkers can make up the company structure. But only by learning and utilizing the common sense concept of Whole Business Thinking can each employee offer their skills in order to better the company.
Management is the level most people would like to achieve during their careers. But management is also still seen as the corporate office with the closed door, and inside sits the person who needs to turn their attention to a new way of thinking.
Success comes from a team that is not only headed up by executives and managers, but also has these leaders at the very core of what they’re trying to accomplish. The leaders must be heard, which means the leader needs to see their company 360-degrees.
3-dimensional thinking is a concept that is unique to the business world. And even though the theories and strategies behind the concept are complex, Whole Business Thinking is a business model that’s easy-to-understand.
The weight of being bogged down under complex language, Performance Indicators and a milieu of hard-to-understand charts and reports, is menacing. Executives do not wish to be involved in this business ‘mess’ that takes their time away from other tasks. However, Whole Business Thinking offers a monumental, easy and necessary education that will keep an established, but floundering, company out of bankruptcy, as well as a small business that is just getting up-and-going that needs to implement a company structure.
In order to move up that corporate ladder, it was always stated that a person must educate themselves and train in order to be the ‘right man/woman for the job.’ However, when reaching a pinnacle, in order to be proud of the hard work that went into the success, an executive must make sure that the company they’ve worked so hard to be a part of survives in this digital world.
The best education and training comes from Whole Business Thinking. When managers turn to this concept in order to identify the problems that have been made in the past, they will be able to discover alterative strategies that will breed future success.
In other words, there is no magic spell that can be used to create a successful business, or stop a downslide from occurring. But if Whole Business Thinking – the 3-dimensional process – is implemented, the added efficiency will show results and bring in financial rewards.
The Corporate Ladder is the past; Whole Business Thinking is the future.
