EP 162 – What is Drama Costing Your Business Beyond Dollars? #2 in a Series

 

This is #2 in a series.  If you didn’t already listen, make sure to go to DefeatDrama.com and find episode # 160




So, did you use my simple calculation to learn the minimal amount you are investing in team drama

 

Weekly?  Annually?

 

How does that feel??



I’ve been helping leaders just like you defeat their team drama for more than 15 years.

 

And, let me just say, I use the term Drama very loosely – 

 

Because to me, when it comes to business, Drama is ANYTHING that shifts focus away from where it needs to be – You need a team laser focused on serving your customer, clients, or patients…….

 

Why have I made it my mission to help leaders Defeat Drama?  Because passionate entrepreneurs, family businesses, and non-profits have important work to fulfill and too often drama stands in the way.  Drama zaps energy, shifts focus AND WORSE – Costs WAY more money than you know!





In addition is the personal toll….and if you’re like any of my clients, you are likely feeling the brunt of this personal toll 



The personal toll

 

Frustration

Overwhelm

Burn out

Resignation

 

But let’s dig even deeper into additional costs not factored into our very simple calculation:




These additional business costs are, perhaps, more challenging to calculate but can be huge, probably bigger than the cost of the lost time.

 

Increased liability – if your team isn’t functioning well there’s a higher probability of mistakes that can lead to poor outcomes.  If a client, customer or patient suffers as a result there can be huge costs.  

 

  • An injury from a poorly constructed product
  • Mis-information that causes a client to take missteps in their business.
  • In healthcare a med error or procedural error could cost a life

 

Take a moment to think about your business.  How could employee missteps, miscommunications, lack of focus impact those you serve?

 

So, maybe an issue doesn’t cause damage large enough to create a liability issue but each SERVICE service issue is costly:  There’s the time to TAKE  a Customer/Client/Patient Complaint.  Then there’s the time to design and implement a satisfactory response.  OR….there is no satisfactory response and you lose that customer along with anyone else they tell – PERSONALLY – or on Social Media.


Then there’s the Decrease  in productivity – time overall is used less effectively……

 

How about the Increase in chaos as a team works confused, coping with issues, putting out fires, working against the clock.

 

So…..for today’s Action – I want you to think about what I’ve shared.

 

HERE’s a Simple One scenario – sales team – customer complaint – trying to fix things – 

Drama

 

Time

Frustration

Ongoing bickering
