It suddenly occurred to me that the one blog I had not written so far was the one about our People Smartz tag line “People Drive Results”. The one thing every business has in common is that people are involved. Whether we are talking one person hanging out their own shingle or a company with 100’s of employees – people are always involved.
Regardless of the business, regardless of its purpose, it is people that make things happen and it is people that work to make that business a success. It doesn’t matter what tools you put in place, what processes they follow or who they are, it all comes back to the people who work in and on the business.
On Monday, I attended a seminar and met a gentlemen who ran his own company in landscape design. Now I will admit, I have two brown thumbs, but this man even had me excited about his company, his industry and him! He was a perfect example of “people drive results”. Regardless of the tools, regardless of the processes, regardless of the client, it was he who made the company what it was – a successful business.
I meet many businessman who spend money on new software programs, consultants, marketing programs etc. These are all essential and important to the productivity of their company and should not be forgotten. But when I start talking to them about the ways they can improve on the gains from this further by spending money on their people many look at me like I am delivering something astonishingly new!
The most basic asset of any business is the people, the area where the most gain can be made is through people and the most cost effective way of having a successful business is through developing yourself and your people.
Yes – regardless of the business, it is people who drive results. Why not talk to us about how we can help you drive your business? Contact People Smartz
