SACRED ORDER OF SURVIVAL:
Surviving your most challenging phase
Many organisations go into 'lock-down' mode during their winter season, focusing on gaining efficiencies and minimising costs through procedures, processes and systems.
This is a sure-fire way to numb your employees' minds. Periods of hardship or downturn are when your people really need to be invigorated with the challenge of saving the business from hardship, not merely battening down the hatches and cowering under the threat of unemployment until the rough times pass.
An unbalanced focus on processes and procedures during periods of downturn are critical business mistakes. Clearly these elements are important, but a single-minded focus on them will drive some employees into hiding, and others into the welcoming arms of your competitors. The last thing you need during winter is your IP walking out the door!
This is the time for managers to maximise the productivity of their best people.
The Sacred Order is a framework for survival in any environment. It is an ancient order of priorities (shelter, water, fire and food), which is translated into managerial functions to teach managers effective survival techniques, even for the most challenging circumstances.
