Continuing from the previous post of “There is nothing more that we can do.”.
I was doing business with an organization that stated this very statement when they were offering their services. The services were being delivered below our needs. There was an eventual agreement of separation with a return on investment.
What got me is the organization happens to be losing customers and carrying an increasing debt load. I was dealing with the top people of the organization when this statement was made. Because of the defeatist attitude, you can clearly see why the business is going down.
An entrepreneurial spirit and can do attitude is what is needed to lift this organization up. There is something that can be done. We can deliver more. We can turn around our fortunes, but when the top people of the organization feels powerless, the organization will not turn.
