Are you flogging a dead horse?

More than 7 weeks of this year have already gone!

At some point you’ll have spent time thinking about how you’re going to achieve your business objectives for 2021. So, how are you doing? Are you on track? What changes have you had to make? (apart from the obvious, pandemic related ones)

Are you getting the results you hoped for or is there room for improvement?

The best definition of insanity we’ve ever come across is ‘doing the same old things over and over again, hoping for different results.’ If what you are doing to achieve your goals – whether they are business related or personal – isn’t working, maybe a tried and tested approach is required to help guarantee success.

However, many organisations and people are afraid of trying something new, no matter how ‘tried and tested’ to succeed it may be. We find that too many people would rather ‘flog a dead horse’ than bury it, find a new one and ride it to outstanding success.

Some of you may have seen this before, but we feel it is still relevant today. Here are our observations on how under-performing organisations use the ‘Flogging a Dead Horse’ approach to achieve that all too elusive, sustainable growth: –

Do any of the above sound familiar?

Change – no matter how positive the results it brings – can be painful, especially if you find people in your organisation unwilling – or unable – to embrace it.

We find most business growth strategies are solid and sound, but it’s the execution that is flawed.

Are you ready to take control and move things forward with a fresh approach that works and is risk free? Have you got a vision for a new ‘horse’ which could lead to dramatic change in your organisation?

You have to be courageous to take those first steps. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. We, at Sewells, have helped organisations to achieve the most significant and positive turnarounds in the most dire circumstances. We can do the same for you.

If you need help and encouragement to start making a change in your organisation then you need to arrange some time to speak with a member of our team (either on the phone, Zoom or via Microsoft teams) as soon as possible.

This is what one of our customers recently said:


“Forget every consultancy you have ever worked with, only one company will really bring in the results if you are open to real change and that is Sewells”.
