Creating calm in the chaos of business, that’s what gets me out of bed…

I began my career in the family business at a very young age sweeping the warehouse floor, assembling trikes, doll carriages and pretty much any other thing that need to be displayed in our stores. I remember fondly as I learned a back office process from my grandmother, how she was a stickler for detail. I was handling documents too many times and was reprimanded for wasting time. It was from that point on I viewed all process from an efficiency perspective. Always seeking an efficient way to do things must be in my DNA, and I applied it to virtually every job I did. Eventually, partnering with my brother, we bought the business from our father and grew the firm from $10 million to $50 million in Revenue with over 750 employees.

So what does that have to do with creating calm in the chaos of business? It’s simple; the root cause of most organizational chaos is directly related to a missed step, broken or incomplete process. This is where I love to get involved and it usually starts with assessing or developing foundational elements inherent in any business; strategy; organizational structure; policy and procedures; people; culture; and technology.

Being in my family business was a great learning experience but it didn’t stop there. I educated myself through courses, seminars, webinars, coaches, mentors and association memberships. In the first 20 years running my own businesses I have had tremendous success and have also experienced the humility of failure along the way. In the last 18 years I have applied what I learned and use this to help others attain their business goals.

I am a firm believer that every organization’s people have answers to their business issues. It’s simply having the time to work on the business rather than in it. And, I believe that an engaged work force is a powerful thing and paramount in attaining a business’s outcome.

Whatever I’m offering to my clients I’m not alone, because at Incrementa our team believes every business and its people have the right to be successful.

Are you ready to take it to the next level?
