Characteristics of a Thriving Organizational Structure
It is easy to coast when things are going well. If you are at the top, why would you need to develop your organization? Why would you need to change anything? A company that refuses to constantly improve and grow is one that will either go stagnant, or be taken over by the competition. Thriving organizations show evidence of great development, which results in healthy organizational structure.
Begin with strong leaders:
Strong leaders as opposed to bosses will help your company thrive. They will help motivate employees to better, and stronger as a team. You want to capitalize on that. Strong leaders will build strong organizations within the company. Identify who your leaders are, and build them up. Figure out what their strengths are, and what motivates them. One person’s strengths are another persons weaknesses, so make sure you play to each leaders strengths.
Make development and training a priority:
Training can sometimes go to the wayside, since it does not immediately affect the bottom line. However, if you want to develop your organization, training must happen. Good training allows your employees to have the fundamentals. That way they can effectively develop into excellent leaders, with a good foundation.
Proactive, not Reactive:
Waiting until something goes wrong, or sales hit a slump to make necessary changes, will not help you thrive as a business. Your company should always be growing and developing, or you will simply grow complacent, which is dangerous. Whether times are good, or bad, always be looking for ways to improve. Making essential changes while times are good is easier than making those changes while in the red, or if your reputation is at stake.
