Result of Note™ Systems Thinking

In order to build strong foundations for performance, productivity, and customer service excellence, employees must become skilled at developing and utilizing systems. The Result of Note (TM) training session provides all team members with the knowledge of why and how to implement systems that will stand the test of time, empowering them to participate more actively in improving personal productivity and business performance. The end result? Less stress, more productivity, higher levels of quality and service, and a healthier bottom line.

A Result of Note™ is defined as any system, habit or ritual that once implemented and committed to seldom, if ever, has to be revisited. While many entrepreneurs recognize the value of systems in enhancing efficiency, productivity, performance and profitability in their business, they run into two obstacles:

  1. Employees are seldom as passionate about creating systems as the owner is. This leads to an attempt at top-down systems implementation and decreases effectiveness because employees feel that the systems are forced upon them.
  2. The creators of systems seldom step back far enough to look at the big picture in building their systems. This leads to the creation of “Band-Aid” systems that are not sustainable.

This training session addresses both of these obstacles to systems creation and provides your team with the knowledge and understanding to create and implement systems that will stand the test of time.

Assessement Methods:

Our instructors are continuously assessing the student’s comprehension and ability to apply their learning through assignments, case studies, and interactive classroom activities that check for understanding. This is crucial in today’s fast-paced business environment as each new skill participants not only learn, but are able to apply in the workplace will have a huge positive impact on the business’s ability to thrive. Unlike structured public courses at colleges and universities that provide more general knowledge and must follow a rigid timeline, our on-site group training format allows our instructors to take the time to ensure that participants are able to take the skills and knowledge they gain in class and apply it to their unique situation to get the results they want in their work and business. We assess the student’s learning and progress using the following methods:

  • Application assignments for in between each training session to apply what was learned in their role in the business. (These assignments are sent in to the instructor in between each session so that the instructor can review them and provide further feedback if the student has not completed the assignment correctly.)
  • Interactive exercises, questions and discussion during the training sessions to ensure that the student understands how to apply the concepts in their role and/or business.
  • Student self-evaluation of their learning at the beginning and end of the program. (This is a brief 5 minute paper survey that the student takes at the beginning and end of each module to provide them with a measure of the knowledge they have gained from the training).
  • (Note: Our instructors are always available via phone and e-mail in-between training sessions should students need assistance with their assignments. This ensures that students are able to complete assignments and be fully prepared to build on their learning in the next session.)
