Communications – It’s more than just English 101

Communications – It’s more than just English 101

Where Is Your Thinking Place?

Where Is Your Thinking Place?

It’s true what they say, if you want something done, give it to a busy person. The reality is, most managers are busier than they should be. There is more to be done with fewer people. The business world is getting more complex and complicated. There is no time to stop. About Michel TheriaultMichel is […]

Look at the Big Picture but Don’t Miss The Details

Look at the Big Picture but Don’t Miss The Details

I found a major budget error that nobody noticed until I arrived at a new job and started breaking my multi-milllion dollar P&L budget apart and reporting it based on different segments. Everyone else was only looking at the big picture and missed the details. About Michel TheriaultMichel is the founder of Success Fuel for […]

Developing Mission and Vision Statements

Developing Mission and Vision Statements

As an employee, I’ve been subjected to Mission, Vision and Value statements when I worked for major organizations and that’s probably how I came to hate them. Many Mission, Vision and Value statements are fluff, sometimes focused on marketing more than what they should be – for employees in the organization. About Michel TheriaultMichel is […]

Perception is Reality

Perception is Reality

Perception is a key hurdle when dealing with customers. Whether you deal with internal customers or external customers, you have probably encountered a customer who has a perception of your service that you don’t agree with. Your customers will see things differently based on their viewpoint or experiences so you shouldn’t be taken off guard. […]

5 Ways to Develop Better Procedures and Practices

5 Ways to Develop Better Procedures and Practices

While I deal with many clients who have little if any documented processes, policies and procedures, simply writing detailed documents isn’t the answer. Having them will definitely improve results, improve consistency, enable training and cross-training, make it easier for someone to fill in for an absence, provide a means of explaining / defending your approach […]

KPI’s Aren’t the Answer to Getting Performance

KPI’s Aren’t the Answer to Getting Performance

Having been on the supplier and the client side in the past, I know that Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) themselves don’t result in performance. While some people like the carrot and stick approach, you need a management approach that uses measurements (and other techniques, not just KPI’s) to get performance. Don’t just rely on a […]

Can You Make A Decision? Get the Information you need.

If you are like most Managers, you are inundated with data and information on a daily basis but not much of it actually helps you make decisions that improve results. And, you simply don’t have enough time to sift through it yourself and find the information you need in order to take action. Getting results […]
