Unleashing Success Through Frictionless Processes

Join us for a conversation about removing friction in your business so you can fly farther than you ever thought possible. Karen Stultz of the Awesome Life podcast interviewed me about how processes help reduce friction and make you more successful.

Highlights from the interview:

Friction-Free business

This is the beauty of creating processes everyone understands and can reference if the leader isn’t around will help the company run more smoothly.

Making time to review your processes, document them, and begin making adjustments is how you can avoid process pitfalls in your business.

One of my favorite parts of working with a company is how they design their processes. I get to see under the hood of the company. If they document their systems, they often don’t have a system for reviewing and improving them.

Most business owners encounter friction in their productivity across several common areas. Identifying and addressing these areas can significantly enhance operational efficiency and overall business performance.

Scientist Mindset

Adopting a scientist mindset, like Thomas Edison, in business opens up a world of strategic advantages, turning the unpredictable world of commerce into a series of experiments from which to learn and evolve. Here’s why it’s so crucial:

With scientists’ curiosity, businesses are more inclined to question the status quo and explore new ideas, leading to innovative products, services, and processes. This mindset encourages a culture of continuous improvement and creative problem-solving.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement, often inspired by philosophies like Kaizen, represents not just a strategy but a mindset that permeates the most successful businesses. It’s a relentless pursuit of betterment in all facets of an organization, from processes and products to people and productivity. Here’s why it stands out as a particularly powerful tool in the business realm:

By constantly seeking ways to streamline operations, businesses can reduce waste — whether that’s time, resources, or effort — leading to increased efficiency. This ongoing process of refinement ensures that operations are lean and agile, capable of delivering maximum value with minimal waste.
