One of the most frustrating aspects of business is a team that just can't get the job done.   In fact, the annals of business history are littered with companies flush with cash who eventually went broke, because they just couldn't make good stuff anymore.   But it doesn't have to be that way. Unsuccessful teams get stuck in two stages of working together, and those are obstacles that can be worked around. Seth Tower Hurd and I break down how.   We'll continue with pt. 2 of this discussion next week.

In a now infamous memo months before the company went under, Blockbuster reported to their employees why "Netflix wasn't a threat," because A). People like reading the back of the DVD box B). Customers like picking up snacks and C). It's great to run into your neighbors at Blockbuster. Turns out people like pushing one button laying on their couch more than all of that.  However, the story of Amazon "killing" Borders or Netflix "killing" Blockbuster, what most people miss is that Barnes and Noble, Redbox, Family Video and countless local bookstores were not "killed" by technology, but continue to thrive. Technology didn't single-handedly "disrupt" Blockbuster or Borderes out of business, their own poor customer service and above market prices  did as well. Brian Utter leads Shine.FM, a radio network covering three states. In 2018, broadcast mediums are in competition with hundreds of other outlets, from podcasts to YouTube videos, for attention...and yet religious broadcasting has seen it's biggest growth from 2010-present.  In this episode, we discuss why Brian says "Shine.FM isn't a radio station" as we look at staying vital to your tribe during great technological disruption...and also dive into creating culture when managing in a legacy organization.  Join The Consultant and the Millennial Facebook Group and grow alongside other leaders as we dive deeper into topics covered on the podcast!  Get in touch with Nathan: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Benchmarkservices.

This week Nathan R. Jaising joins us on the Consultant and the Millenial. Nathan is President and CEO of Benchmark Psychiatric Services which provides outpatient psychiatric services, counseling, and  psychiatric testing.  This weeks episode we adress pain points for a small business owner.  The first being "why do things move so slowly for the owner." Haydn addresses this by encouraging business owners to remember that to the employee that movement is occurring much faster than it is to the CEO. By eliminating leadership perspective vs employee perspective and identifying obvious weak links, one can then begin to identify and release bottlenecks in the system. We also address the Pain point of unfollowed processes that eat up time and tactics to weed out employees who refuse to follow processes as well as to redirect the employee back to the process and system so the CEO is not solving and becoming the owner of the solution.   Join The Consultant and the Millennial Facebook Group and grow alongside other leaders as we dive deeper into topics covered on the podcast!  Get in touch with Nathan: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Benchmarkservices.
