Before Gerhard

I have found that any business owner or executive will handle their areas based on the way that they see or are able to observe those areas. That’s almost one of these “duh” statements.

I invite you to look at it a bit closer, though.  The way you view your business, your office, your area is based on you education, your experience and your training. So, if you are able to add some new way of looking at those areas you are apt to see things in a different way and so become able make positive changes.

Has it ever happened to you that you learned something new about it and that made you look differently at your area? I hope this has happened to you, because than you already understand a bit better what I mean.

After Gerhard

Let me invite you to participate in a little practical:  After you have read this or when you have the next available time, 10 minutes or more, walk into your area like you have never been there before and start questioning why things are done the way done.

Remember this will only work if you are being someone at that moment who has never set foot into the area before.

You might see things now that when you question them from this new point of view that do not seem very efficient. Well, if you can see that they are not that efficient, than you can also figure out a simpler way to make them more efficient.

Go ahead and try it out and let me know what you’ve come up with.

I’m looking forward to your feedback.
