Will you re-open for business post COVID-19 with a broken business model or a financially viable business?
6 May 2020
COVID-19 has provided us with many challenges, both personally and professionally; and yet, it is also providing us with many windows of opportunity, again both personally and professionally. To ensure we remain safe, the majority of us have changed our workplace from the office which we drove to every day to an office space which we can walk to in less than 10 seconds. And with this change, we are gaining many benefits including less time commuting and more time with our family, cooking meals and exercising. So when we’re allowed to re-open for business and return to our workplaces, will this mean everyone will automatically do this or will most people prefer to remain working from home?

It always amazes me the amount of RTO Owners who call me in to help solve their ‘people’ problems which is code for: it’s them, not me. And yet, upon further discussion and investigation, it is clear the staffing issues are as a result of the lack of simple systems and the Owner being ‘too nice’. This is because instead of dealing with any issue as it arose, they either didn’t know how to manage it or didn’t want to; so they ignored it, in the hope it would resolve itself on its own or just disappear. Sound familiar? Then please read on to see why being a nice boss isn’t helping you, your staff or your business. Side issue: If you run the RTO on behalf of the Owner or report to a Board, then this blog is still worth a read – just please change the word ‘Owner’ with your title.

I love the movie Top Gun and this is such a critical message in the movie. Not only because of the safety issues which could have ensued, but it shows the importance of everyone following the rules and being a great team member (and thus a leader). So why does Maverick break the rules? Simple: he thought he was above them and believed his judgement should have been enough. But of course, it’s not.

It always fascinates me when I ask CEOS, Managers or their staff about problems in their RTO because nine times out of ten, they tell me the problem which is great. But then when I ask, ‘why haven’t you talked to the person about it?’, the answer is, ‘Ohh I don’t like conflict’. To which I just shake my head. And as someone who has been bullied twice in the workplace (ironically by women), I could go on and on about this topic. But in this blog, I want to shine the light on one of the reasons I believe this is happening.

Last week, I wrote about the bullying and disrespect being displayed in many reality TV Shows, and it’s made me think further about the reputational damage or enhancement to a person’s brand by saying Yes to be part of these shows. And as someone who has been bullied twice in the workplace (ironically by women), I could go on and on about this topic. But in this blog, I want to shine the light on one of the reasons I believe this is happening.

Now please don’t mistake my headline to mean I support bullying and disrespect because I certainly do not. And as someone who has been bullied twice in the workplace (ironically by women), I could go on and on about this topic. But in this blog, I want to shine the light on one of the reasons I believe this is happening.

choice complicates the sale so showing customers (aka students) everything you can do for them, all at once, doesn’t increase the bottom line like you might think – it actually stifles it. So what then happens if you take the reverse approach and develop an ‘All or Nothing’ Business Model?

tips to developing your 2020 Annual Business Plan, or what I call my 1 Page Annual Business Intent. Hopefully, you’ve already done this so you may want to include these considerations, if you haven’t already. If you haven’t written your 2020 Business Intent, I hope this will give you the ideas and the focus to block out time to GET IT DONE because it’s a critical document within your RTO business.

I want to make sure you and your RTO are starting out on the right foot. And in order to do that, we all have to stop, reflect and make some critical decisions about what we will and won’t do in 2020. Otherwise, there’s a strong possibility we will just focus on the tasks at hand and continue with the same (and possibly bad) habits from last year which will likely lead to similar results – some of which we want and some we probably don’t. Three simple strategies to reset your RTO.
