From executives to managers to front line employees, everyone’s involvement is required to create efficient workplaces.

Sonya Shelton, CEO of Executive Leadership Consulting (ELC), knows the benefits of having an efficient workplace. The more efficient the workplace the more effective it will be. Efficient workplaces are able to easily meet deadlines, achieve quotas and keep the culture of the organization engaged and running smoothly.
So how do you improve the effectiveness of a workplace? According to Shelton, “There are some basic rules for keeping the workflow flowing the money coming in. From executives to managers to front line employees, everyone’s involvement is required to create efficient workplaces.”
According to ELC, an efficient workplace begins with effective leaders. In today’s business environment, it’s no longer enough for executives to lead by the power of their position alone but instead they need to step up and be leaders. Effective leaders know that what they do is far more important than what they say. Strong leaders also have the courage to deal with issues. Tolerating issues and not dealing with them drains energy of the leader and the organization.
Communication in the workplace is also essential for being most efficient. When leaders don’t communicate, you create a misaligned workplace. Clear, ongoing communication is key to keeping everyone at the organization working together as a team.
The greatest impact to success is when leadership focuses on alignment. Start with a clear vision, then align every aspect of the organization from the systems to the processes to how the organization is structured. This means you can have many goals, but One Vision. You can have many people, but One Voice. And you can have many activities, but One Direction.
Encouraging not only the leaders of the organization but the entire team to focus on these goals will help lead to an effective workplace which will then be most efficient.
