How Sustainable Business Initiatives Drive Unemployment Down

What if we invest in building a sustainable business that drives unemployment down? Imagine a society where only 1 out of 100 children survives past the age of 15. Such a scenario would spell the end of humanity’s long-term survival. Similarly, the current trend of short-lived businesses threatens economic growth. Startling statistics reveal that only 1% of companies endure beyond 15 years, with a mere 20% reaching the 5-year milestone.

This blog post explores the significance of sustaining businesses, addresses unemployment, and proposes a novel solution: recycling human capital through sustainable entrepreneurship.

The number of businesses that started and existed over some time determines economic growth. If the companies do not exist over a long period, there is no chance of economic prosperity. Why is our society not doing enough to ensure that more than 1% of businesses survive for over 15 Years? Then, what happens to the people who have been working in these businesses? Where do they go? You are right. They become unemployed, and their skills become dormant, a significant loss to the labor market.

My next concern was what we could do to end this menace and promote economic growth and prosperity. Then the thought of …


A Guide for Entrepreneurs to Foster a Results-Driven Company Culture

The success of your business hinges on the prevailing company culture, especially one that is results-driven. Every business inherently possesses a culture, whether by design or happenstance. From my own experience, I’ve come to understand that establishing a results-driven company culture for entrepreneurs necessitates more than mere instruction or discussion; it requires a fundamental shift in the mindset and behaviors of individuals within the organization.

Creating a culture requires systemic organizational changes transforming how people think and behave. In this article, I will share my discovery on developing and cultivating a culture of results to improve performance in your organization.

Every employee makes and maintains this through disciplined adherence to ensure profitability and continuance of the company’s operation.

Getting the right people that can come together with unique business systems to create a culture of results through discipline, enthusiasm, and high productivity is not easy. The magic begins once you find the right team, and performance shoots …

How to Prevent Everyday Profit Margin Waste: Actionable Tips

Recently, during my travels, I encountered an unexpected flight delay at Amsterdam airport that shed light on a significant issue: preventable profit margin waste. The scene was all too familiar – interminable queues at check-in counters, exacerbated by a glaring shortage of personnel. As a consequence, I, along with numerous fellow passengers, missed our flights. This setback led to a frustrating 10-hour wait before rebooking for the following day and prompted my contemplation about the avoidable loss incurred by the airline.

Amidst the collective inconvenience, it struck me that had effective measures been in place to prevent profit margin waste; the airline could have reaped substantial benefits. By optimizing operational efficiency, not only could the original flight have taken off with a full complement of passengers, but the replacement flight could have accommodated additional travelers, bolstering profits in the process.

This experience made me see how easily a company can lose profit and reminded me of a book I read long ago called Six Sigma Simplified by Jay Arthur. This book talks about a tale of two factories.

According to Jay Arthur, every business has two “factories” running simultaneously:

  • The “Good Factory” is where you focus most of your energy

How to Conquer the Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Strategies for Business Owners

Why the perception that the scope of team dysfunctions is confined to just five represents a grave misconception that needs urgent correction. This prevailing belief undermines the multifaceted nature of team dynamics, potentially obscuring the broader spectrum of challenges that can impede team success.

Is your team failing to function well despite fixing the common five dysfunctions of a team? Today is your lucky day. In this blog, I will share my fortuitous discovery, which will give you an insight into other team dysfunctions you may have overlooked.

Recently, I had the idea to write a blog article on team dysfunction. Just like everyone will do, I decided to research the keywords to find out what people out there thought about team dysfunctions. I started by typing “Team dysfunction” on Google, and to my surprise, at least all the results in the first five pages were based on “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team” by Patrick Lencioni.

I was surprised because this didn’t match my expectations. In my mind, I expected to find different sources or a variety of viewpoints on team dysfunction. I was shocked to be the only one with a unique perspective on such a sensitive subject …
