TRIPLE III TIME – Indispensable: THE Value Test
In a recent workshop session I challenged the group to determine if they…their products and services…were Indispensable to their/today’s marketplace. And as I witnessed a lot of questioning looks on the faces of those in attendance, I realized I needed to better explain my question with a more exact definition of Indispensable.
The definition I gave them was a series of words. I stated that in order to consider yourself or your organization Indispensable…are you:
- All Important
The reaction of the group was quite humbling. And even though they were confident that they individually and as a group were Indispensable…they felt really challenged by THE Value Test!
My Indispensable: THE Value Test was actually very simple. Specifically I first asked:
- Have the potential customers coming through your doors changed? Answer: YES…a lot!
- Have the organizations/businesses you work with changed? Answer: YES…a lot!
- Finally have the needs of the customers/organizations/businesses changed? Answer: YES…a lot!
Then I asked if everything around you has changed “a lot”…what/how have you changed and thereby increased your Indispensable VALUE to the marketplace?
Well I am not going to give you the details of our follow-up discussion. Instead I want everyone to apply the Indispensable: THE Value Test to yourself, your business and/or your organization. Are you Essential, Vital, All Important, Crucial, Imperative, Key and Necessary?? This type of unique strategy session is high value in every workplace situation.
Give the “Test” a try. Honesty and awareness are great motivational and inspirational outcomes.
