Creating good employees. Part 6

Where do we start? 

Start at the beginning… That would be the correct answer. Often, changes are not made within a company because: 

Positions may need to be shuffled. 

The owner/CEO could be at fault. 

Senior people may not be happy. 

Noses will be out of joint. 

Feathers will be ruffled.  

Asses will be kicked. 

HR is incompetent.  

There could be so many reasons for procrastination but in the end, there needs to be a beginning. Having completed a few stints in a consulting position this is where some big problems arise. Fights and arguments can and will break out. People will be upset because they fear the outcome. This should not be the case and that fear shows weakness.  

When someone is looking in from the outside, the company’s secret or not-so-secret inadequacies and inefficiencies will be discovered. This could be efficiencies, systems, overlapping production, and crisscrossing of employees. There may be unsafe working conditions, repetitive tasks and so forth. 

The money… 

When looking at any internal issues, we need to focus on the money. The waste, the possible gains and the efficiencies or lack thereof. People use S.W.O.T. to analyze themselves, however, these tasks are completed by the employees from within the company. They are already blinded by the trees. They cannot see the forest for the trees.  

This is where things get interesting and often out of hand internally.  

This is when the consultant becomes hated. The truth or the lies from within are uprooted. The root cause of the problem will clearly be found and changes should be made.  

This simple version of dark secrets and hidden red tape will slowly rise to the top. On many occasions, it is not the fault of the employees but rather poor systems or poor communication from within.  

But we have done it this way for… 

The best and most common answer is, “We have always done it this way”. That is the correct answer because there is no one looking in on your sorry ass to tell you otherwise.  

This is the fault of the business, management, owner/CEO and not that of the employee. This new explorative consulting need not be feared. This should be embraced because it will bring positive results.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
