Consulting Blind Spots
We have been able to see some of the biggest technological and world changing transformations during our lifetime. We have had many books chronicle success and failure of the biggest brands; some of them global. During shifts in economic stability, one of the things that commonly occurs with businesses and entrepreneurs is that some shrink, rather than grow. They pull back instead of moving forward. They cut marketing budgets, they cut training and research. They don’t go toward investigating their blind spots-they potentially get mired down in the details of doing the same thing they are already doing-just doing more of it. Of course, there are necessary expense shifts one makes to manage financials.
However, what if a company could get to the "epicenter” of what caused the decline or what was effecting their sales trajectory, who and what the executive team represented to their teams, the corporate environment or where the cultural environment and trends were going and determined what they didn’t know about what they didn’t know—therein lies the secret to using their blind spots to regain their market share.
In a service based business, when someone works 20% more effectively, then you have gained a competitive advantage which you can use to deliver value to clients or to increase margins. It can make employees happier and more motivated and more loyal towards meeting your targeted goals.
Big and small businesses can do several things to address the blind spots and ride the wave when the environment shifts.
