As I removed some clutter from a closet at home this past weekend it reminded me of the three types of dangerous clutter clogging many companies: under-producing employees, unprofitable clients, and ineffective technology. Under-producing employees are taking up a valuable seat that costs your organization tens of thousand of dollars while unprofitable clients litter the calendars of multiple people in your firm, keeping you from finding and working with better customers. Ineffective technology muddles your entire process, stealing precious time and resources that could be spent building relationships and growing your business.
Unless these areas of clutter can be rectified to align with the needs of a smooth running operation, it’s time to part ways. When you do, you’ll create space for lower stress, better productivity, more sustainable growth, and higher profits.
