What results are you getting?
If you are a mid-sized business, it’s likely that you haven’t been getting the results that you want from your business lately. Mid-sized companies haven’t exactly benefited from the last decade’s economic progress. A study done by Compustat was published by the Harvard Business Review and indicated that the growth rate in profit, sales and assets has declined over the past 50 years. This is at the lowest rate during the last decade ending 2019.
This same period was labeled as a decade of economic recovery due to growth in household income, GDP and several other factors. What a frustrating place to be!
There is hope – The facts about Joy
There are plenty of studies that show there is increased productivity when employees are happy. Most research has found that happy employees are somewhere between 13% and 20% more productive.
What would your business look like in 1 year if the employees were 13% more productive?
What would it look like in 5 years if they were 20% more productive?
Joy as the fuel
The key to leveraging the effects of joy in business is simple, but not always easy. When Joy is the fuel for your success, you are starting with motivation that everyone can get behind.
Joy isn’t selfish, it isn’t profit focused and isn’t discriminatory, yet the impact is profound when it comes to results.
There are 4 key steps to using joy as the fuel to maximize the results in your business:
- Permeate a belief in joyful possibilities – The first step in making any lasting change is to start with the belief that the new outcome is not only possible but also inevitable. Jumping into a plan of attack with a group of people (preferably leaders) in your company who believe deeply in your vision and the possibilities that joy can have, will ensure that you have a solid foundation for growth.
- Develop a standard of joy – A clear standard of joy of which all employees are held accountable, is imperative to obtaining sustainable change in the your culture. For example, a statement like “We do all things through the lens of Joy” helps employees filter their actions, reaction and elevates their performance.
- Design habits that support the standard of joy – Habits that are designed from this standard, are more sustainable and thus, can lead to better results. Are you starting to see how these all build on each other? It is key that each process is supported by the previous processes so that you build a pyramid of transformation that is not easily toppled.
- Track and celebrate the results – The old adages apply here; “What you track gets done” and “What you celebrate increases.” Implementing fun and easy ways to track and celebrate your employees’ results will cement all the previous work and ensure that you develop a continuous cycle of joy.
