Thanks for dropping by.
So why am I here?

My goal: partnering with SME's and corporate entities to improve internal processes. This means:
* Working with management teams and departments that have highlighted potential business system bottlenecks and wish to significantly reduce/remove
* Reducing business silos
* Help business to distinguish business opportunities and assertively seizing them.
* I identify with many business managers that don't necessarily "want" new innovations but "need" accurate information in a timely manner.

If your company is looking at some holistic business solution to meet today's demands or you would like to future proof your business then you are in the top tier of leaders that I like working with.

How the mighty fell...What Went Wrong At Boeing? | Business Development | Scoop.it
What Went Wrong At Boeing? Boeing's management incurred significant outsourcing risks without taking steps to mitigate those risks
Leighton Atkins's insight:

You understand your business and customers better than most. So if you are considering outsourcing do not make the mistake to outsource strategic decisions whether financial, marketing or project management. Automate processes and get back in the captains chair.

Emotional intelligence most important tool for SMEs, expert suggests

Emotional intelligence most important tool for SMEs, expert suggests | Business Development | Scoop.it
While business owners expend most of their energy focusing on planning, administration, cashflow, and getting through the day, one expert says the focus should shift to the psychology of business.
Leighton Atkins's insight:

According to www.talentsmart.com – a leading provider of emotional intelligence – training, over 75% of the Fortune 500 companies use emotional intelligence training tools and 90% of top performers have high emotional intelligence.

 

The concept of emotional intelligence is open to misinterpretation however, and it is essential to realise that it is not just about being pleasant all the time, or letting your emotions run wild. It is important to know how to deal with confronting colleagues – sometimes bluntly – on an issue. The main outcomes for an emotionally intelligent workplace or team should be stability, decreased conflict, more cohesive relationships and increased productivity.

Learning from personal life that will effect work | Business Development | Scoop.it
Leighton Atkins's insight:

So I was reviewing the information world that we live in; how we read, absorb and review more eBooks than paper and where this trend rise will lead got me thinking. My learning is this... with less personal time and wanting to make the most of our personal education by reaching for a kindle rather than a paper books at home it makes sense to implement this same technology for our busy work life to upload, store and retrieve data/information. What difference would such technology make to your busy work life balance?
