It’s 29 years yesterday since I took over the running of Sewells.
We’ve learned a lot about how to help our clients to dramatically improve their business performance over that time.
Probably the biggest thing we’ve learned is that success in business isn’t about doing extraordinary things …. it is about doing the simple things extraordinarily well.
The “simple things” are those which still work after all the latest fads have come and gone.
For example, publishers make over 90% of their profit from books they published more than six months ago. And yet they only put 2% of their effort into promoting and selling those books…. they make the mistake of focusing on what’s new instead of what works.
It’s just the same with leadership and business improvement skills.
It turns out that time spent on mastering the “simple things”, and learning how to do them extraordinarily well, is almost always a solid investment: it yields a terrific ROI and encourages brilliant communication, effective motivation, delegation, decision making, creative problem solving, time management, prioritising … and so on.
There’s a simple explanation as to why this approach is such a great investment …
Unfortunately though, many organisations look in the wrong place for solutions because they are the people who just like the “new stuff”. These people are easier to reach, possibly even more fun to work with, but because they seek variety, they rarely check whether the suggested approaches work or not. It doesn’t really matter to them … what matters is they’re new!
We at Sewells have, over the past 55 years (Sewells had a 25 year heritage before I took over), developed vast expertise and experience in helping leaders do the simple things extraordinarily well. Our tried and tested approach is guaranteed to produce brilliant results, results like these which we’ve achieved for our clients …
- As a result of our work with an organisation in the manufacturing industry it had reduced ‘defects’ by 84.6% …. and within just 12 months
- Another organisation found staff productivity improved by 24.1% from the previous year
- Also, after working with a client in the oil and gas industry, we helped the organisation drive performance and achieve their 5 year growth plan in fewer than 2
