Common Pain Points Pathfinder Dating Strategies
The Pathfinder Strategies team sees companies struggling with issues such as churn, poor management performance, and poor communication. These difficulties turn into deeper problems such as the following:
Churn costs businesses in several ways. First, losing employees is expensive due to recruitment and training. Second, the recruitment and training process can be emotionally taxing for staff. Third, churn can cause employees to doubt their position, leading to underperformance and generally poor attitudes, which can lead to more churn and strained communications.
- Poor managerial performance
Poor managerial performance can lead teams to produce disappointing results. When teams can’t take pride in their work, it can lead to disappointment, miscommunication, and conflict. Poor managerial performance is sometimes the result of underdeveloped leaders or leaders who lack their heads in the game. Manager performance issues also lead to churn, as managers have an impact of up to 70% on team commitment (Gallup). And overall, this category is closely related to the other two.
Miscommunication serves as a catalyst for churn and conflict — and has become an increasing problem in the hybrid workplace.
If your business is experiencing any of these issues, training may not be the solution. Instead, you may need a top-down approach similar to Pathfinder Strategies to find the real pain points and finally free yourself from one of those negative feedback loops.
How Pathfinder Strategies Can Help
When customers ask Pathfinder Strategies for help, the team works with them to peel back the layers and understand the root cause. The process begins with a high-level needs assessment. From there, the strategy is to dig in by talking to employees.
The key here is that employees collectively understand what’s going on behind the curtain. In this way, the true foundations can be completely deconstructed and assessed.
Once the team identifies the major pain points, they design a solution specifically designed to bring the business back to peak performance. The solution usually involves a combination of consulting and programming. For example, if good leaders are underdeveloped, Pathfinder Strategies will find industry specialists who can upgrade those leaders.
The group leaves companies with a toolbox of solutions that will allow them to avoid the same problems in the future. Overall, the goal is to work with clients, bringing them to the point of being proficient in finding solutions on their own.
How does this help companies keep their best?
When an organization performs well at all levels, employees will generally be satisfied. Well-trained management and good communication instil a positive work culture where people feel comfortable. In an environment like this, the best employees will want to stay.
