Processes are taken very seriously at LI Group. We update them every quarter and share them with our team to ensure that everyone is on the same page. We’ve helped our clients go from overwhelmed to streamlined over the years. And now we’d like to share some signs that it may be time for you to streamline your processes, too!
Are you holding on to old processes that aren’t serving you well anymore? Do they keep you from growing as an entrepreneur, or are they just wasting your time and resources? If so, you may need to consider streamlining to help you run your business more efficiently. Here are some things you may say that are actually signs that your processes need help.
It’s fine! My systems are in folders.
If your processes are in folders, that’s a great first step! But if there are hundreds of documents within those folders, dating back to the year 2000, chances are some of that information could use an update.
No new employee needs to spend hours virtually digging through them during onboarding to learn about their role and responsibilities. In fact, a first day like that could easily turn into their last day!
My team can call me anytime – it’s all in my head.
Having an open-door policy sounds great in theory. But when that open door doesn’t come with boundaries, you’re headed for burnout and overwhelm. Fast.
Processes that live in the mind of the CEO aren’t very effective when you want to go on a vacation and are left scrambling as you try to explain everything to each person on your team. It’s unrealistic to think that you’ll always be available for everyone all the time.
Your team needs processes that are:
- Easy to access
- All in one place
- Automated when possible
Legendary Ideas Group has a team of Trainual Certified Consultants ready to help you get our processes up and running smoothly (or updated and back on track).
