From Outputs to Outcomes
How RedGiant Can Help You Use Strategy, Engagement, and Analytics to Deliver Customer Delight, Happy Employees, and Incredible Results
Your organization works well, but it has so much more potential. You think, “If we focus on high lifetime value customers, we can build on our existing team to be even more profitable. If we can deliver ‘customer delight’ to them, they will become our advocates and we can build a solid foundation for the future”. You know you can get there – “we just need to work a little harder”. You set out to make it a reality.
You plan, you establish goals, you set timelines. You work with your marketing, sales, and operational teams to achieve those goals – sure, there were a few blank stares, but you just needed to move. The strategy is put into place – great outcomes are just around the corner. On to the first quarterly cycle!
At the quarter’s end little, if any, progress on the plan has been made.
You look back. Everyone was working hard day to day. “Why haven’t we made progress?”, you think to yourself, “Sure, it took longer than we expected to revamp our marketing. Just keeping up with existing customers and sales was really tough this quarter.” There was a lot of activity. But you haven’t moved the needle on the outcomes you wanted to achieve.
It just doesn’t feel right. It shows in the faces of your team as they realize they haven’t met their marks. They are demoralized.
Fear and frustration set in.
This is a story that nearly every entrepreneur has lived. It is a story that is just as applicable to large as small organizations – and to teams that are nestled in bigger enterprises.
There is a synergy among stakeholders. How Employees feel – whether they are engaged and happy – affects their performance not only in terms of the quality and reliability of products and services, but also in whether they are advocates for their organization –a truly powerful sales dynamic. Employee psyche, in turn, affects the happiness and loyalty of Customers. Customer Delight is a well-documented, cost effective way to sustain and grow a business. Delighted Customers can also be extremely credible advocates that extend the reach of sales and marketing to potential customers and into untapped markets at little or no cost the business. Happy Customers make for happy Leaders and Owners. Leaders and Owners can and should be a source of Employee contentment. Leaders take pride and get satisfaction in managing a business that lives up to its promise. And so the cycle of synergy is complete.
Transformational change occurs when energy is focused on those things that matter most to an organization. Most organizations do not. Research has shown that typically less than 30% of employees’ activities are actually linked to their organization’s highest priorities.
Effort is not enough. Successfully executing on a strategy is not a matter of motion, it is a matter of Focus and Alignment. That is: Focus that is clear and communicated and Aligned to the actions and decisions of employees throughout the organization. Good Intentions are also not enough – for some 60% plus of strategic performance management initiatives don’t meet their stated objectives.
As it turns out, success in delivering the desired Strategic Outcomes is not only dependent on, but also crucial to fostering Employee Engagement. We believe that successful Strategies are built on Engaged and Inspired Employees
