Business Development: Treat the Cause, not the Effect

Let’s take an easy example: weight management. Forcefully removing extra weight by aggressive exercise and strictly denying yourself the pleasures of eating is both unhealthy and unnatural. It is a common misconception that deprivation of food would reduce body mass. Some fat people eat very little and still remain fat. The problem lies in the hormonal disfunction. Metabolism depends on enough hormones to break down food. Thin people break down their food so much that don’t build up mass. Chinese medicine refers to yin-yang disharmony.

Translating this into business means, we need to work on the cause  or the root of the problem, e.g. nurturing employee’s potentials, not just on the effect, e.g. to push sales by demanding sales figures from the sales department.

Nurturing human potential will strengthen the root of the company. How is that? Training open communication, teaching leaders to show that they value employees, practicing relaxation techniques  along with creativity tools reinforces not only the employee’s potential and productivity, but also his contentment, health, alignment with the company culture and commitment. No, it’s not about pampering at all. It’s rather threatening ego programs, challenging and learning to appreciate the challenge..

In some fast-growing companies, training is thought to be impossible due to poor time management or unnecessary due to extensive demand…. until employees get frustrated or sick of it all and leave as soon as there is better job-offer on the market.

For some well-established companies, training and innovation sounds like a threat to both leaders and employees for a reason: lack of awareness leads to fear and avoidance of change … until competition takes over.

In start-ups the awareness to  nurture and grow HR potential seems to mark the longevity of the company.

WalkingGuru training and business development focuses on providing and experimenting with the tools for communication and creativity to establishing a company culture that serves as a safe, transparent environment. Tools need to be applied: We accompany the path to grow into who we can be, when experimenting our potentials, both on an individual level and as an organization by phone coaching, in-house workshops and special coaching events.

Assumption: Humans have the need to grow and expand on some level, and so do companies. What is your vision of growing sustainably?   +34 661 682 888
