» How To Destroy a Successful Company
By Technolex | Published 02/27/2017 | Business Issues | Recommendation:
In this article we will tell you how to destroy a prosperous company whilst having the best intentions. By following business coaches’ tips, but ignoring corporate values and culture, anyone can fall into this trap. The following situation can arise in any business, but is particularly crucial for companies whose major asset is qualified staff. For a translation agency, these are managers, translators and editors. Base line: the head of a quite successful company feels a kind of stagnation in its development, or perhaps is just bored of the daily grind. They are not pleased with the way their employees communicate, how mid-level managers act, their working hours, company Internet misuse, etc. Moreover, they have heard somewhere that their competitors are more financially efficient. So they take a couple of training sessions, read a few booklets with titles like ‘How to Tame the Chaos Around You’, find like-minded colleagues and begin to implement reforms as if they have gained some secret knowledge. Below we will consider what results this may lead to.
