Sometimes the biggest horror is the biggest blessing. I helped a production company implement time sheets to track project profitability. Under the scrutiny, three key employees handed in their notice. Horror! Yes, maybe. Then comes relief.
Time sheets showed these three team members were not carrying their weight. We knew this instinctively but until we were presented with time keeping, we didn’t have actual information.
After a brief pause, relief set in and we stepped up to rehire. We were able to replace 3 team members with 2 new super stars who will drive our business to the next level.
What horror have you experienced in your business that turned out to be the biggest blessing?
