If we know what the issues are and what employees goals are, now we can start to change the environment that they work in. As we alter the environment, people are able to make changes within it.
The following scenario will illustrate this, but also show how to use what is common practice in business to create new possibilities.
What is the difference between living healthy and not living healthy? In business, what is the difference between a healthy, productive company and an unhealthy, unproductive company? The difference is goals.
Sales Goals- your company requires each sales rep to close 20 clients per month. You don’t care how they do it, between calls, in person meetings, networking, or otherwise, but their goal is twenty clients by month end.
It only makes sense to make sure that goals are supported by the environment. No one woke up this morning wanting to be unhealthy and not feel good. We all want to feel good, so if the environment can support this, we all will.
I’m not saying that everywhere I go has an unhealthy environment. I just need to ask the question, how healthy is the environment?
We’ve discussed setting goals in the past, but let’s go deeper with it to see how small changes lead to big results. It starts with the difference between goals that are supported and goals that are not. As you may be able to tell (by logic or personal experience) goals that are supported are much more likely to be reached.
One way to illustrate this is by looking at goals strictly from a business viewpoint. If I ask the question: “What are you doing to support the performance goals of your employees?” it is much clearer for most employers.
Health goals are not quite as clear to see in business. It is more challenging to set up an environment that will support and create health.
It starts with that simple question:
What can I do to support the health of my employees?
Decreasing Health Care Spending.
Improving Employee Satisfaction and Retention.
