Are you ready to think differently?

27th July 2017

It is fast becoming almost a cliché to write that the world is changing at speed but the truth is there is a need for a change in mindset and to refresh thinking. Every sector faces its own challenges with a market and consumer that wants to be engaged and have choice. The norm is no longer enough. There is a need to return to almost old-fashioned values that really focus on engaging the customer and revenue growth.

Consider some of the social changes taking place:

  • The Fear of making a mistake has long stopped many people from taking risks and doing what is right. However, failure is the best of learning curves as most entrepreneurs will tell you and is often the bedrock of success for those that are mentally able to respond.
  • Many companies need to look at their in-house operations and consider how to make them destinations that draw employees into their buildings naturally for being great spaces and environments for work.  If each company employees more freelancers how does one ensure a strong culture and strong communications without ensuring that their offices are the draw- the cultural centrepiece?
  • It is well reported that 1:4 Executives are suffering from mental illness. Great food and great working environments is one of the most obvious ways of reducing stress. So how can businesses play a broader social role and create spaces that engage their customers better?
  • So many conversations are focused on cost rather than revenue growth. The two are different mind sets and yet the former is often more prevalent. However the latter is more customer-focused.

It is time for new thinking, we just need to embrace it.
