Linking Employee Productivity to Nature’s Organic Processes
MAY 13, 2019
When a flower doesn’t bloom, fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower. A friend sent me this quote recently, and it made me think about the difference between how we usually deal with issues surrounding employee productivity and how nature would teach us to handle the problem. Unfortunately, our usual strategy is to “fix the person.” For example: We use tactics to get the employee to be more productive or competent. We structure their work to hold them more accountable.
