You Can Solve Any Business Problem with These

November 16, 2015

 
TeachU Developed the 3Es Business System 
 
I list three core building blocks on my website that I believe can solve any business problem. A lot of study and experienced based research has led me to build an entire approach to business around those three pillar. They are:
 
Ethics
 
The decline of ethics has is at the heart of the squeeze being placed on the middle class in America. The decline of ethics gave us the financial meltdown of 2008. The decline of ethics has given us mega mergers leading to less choice and worsening service. The decline of ethics has destroyed the work life balance for many workers. The decline of ethics has taken many companies to bankruptcy. This is pretty easy to fix if there is a will to change the culture of a business. As conduct within a business becomes more ethical, things begin to improve. Amazing. It works. It is also almost impossible to get a business to adopt the resolve to be more ethical. Why?
 
Education
 
Some problems can be fixed with a little training. Some employees can be motivated by providing a little education. Education can do amazing things, just like ethics. A small investment in education will produce huge returns. No, you needn’t foot the bill for a Harvard MBA program. Something as basic as a guest speaker who can stimulate thinking can be enough to produce measurable improvement. There are great video courses available on DVD. Buy a few and make them available to employees. I have trained many people out of bad habits. It can be done. Like ethics, there is resistance to providing education. See a pattern here?
 
Excellence
 
Excellence today is little more than an obscure word in a mission statement that no one can recite. Yes, every business is excellent. Really? They probably spout that off where you make your daily bread. But do you see excellence in everything your company does? Do you see excellence in the way people are treated? I know of companies that make excellent products and treat their employees badly. Is a company that produces a good product but treats employees like children who are to be seen working but not heard from, excellent? I don’t think so.
 
I try to not only do things right, but also to do the right thing. I am always learning. I often fall short but I try to do everything excellently. Those three pillars have paid off for me and every client who has let me bring them to their business.
 
And then there are those who resist. Too bad.
 
If your business offers a product or service that people want and if you strive to build upon the 3Es of business I list here, your business will succeed.

How to Draft Resolutions to Strengthen Your Partnership

I recommend that partners talk through a specific issue and then draft an agreement (called a resolution) that sets a policy. You can keep this in a binder to serve as amendments (or foundation) to your Partnership Agreement. In this post I’ll explain how to talk about things that bug you with your partner and how to draft a binding resolution to fix the problems.

The Most Important Step When Starting a Business Partnership

The 2 reasons creating a Partnership Agreement should be your first step when forming a business partnership. First, the protection a Partnership Agreement affords makes skipping this step rather dumb. Second, the process of working out the terms of your Partnership Agreement will reveal potential problems and help you work them out before they happen in the real world.
