The Perception and Reality of Business Effectiveness
The Perception of Business Effectiveness -
Let’s talk about the “perception” and “reality” of business growth.
You know the difference between perception and reality. Perception gives you an “impression”. Reality is the experience of the truth of the matter. Reality is what counts. Perception/impression may not to give you results that you would expect, or like.
The perception of where your company is with regard to growth is based on your increasing sales and profitability, the company perspective of itself, and it as compared to your competition and industry standard.
You could ask yourself “What is the perception of my corporate growth?, “Is my corporate growth bringing me the long-term results I am looking for? And, what are the costs of my company not fulfilling its growth potential?
It is important to note here that the “reality” of a company’s achievement and growth could be quite different based on another perspective. The perception of your business condition could be deceiving, and could include a number of unseen losses.
“Your perception is verified by its comparison to another perspective.”
Opportunity Analysis -
We can focus on a company’s position by asking these questions –
“What we are addressing here is turning a perception into a new reality by understanding where we are at and creating a path to a reality of improved business development and greater profitability results.”
The Reality of Business Effectiveness -
Cutting Costs and Building Profitability -
As we know building profitability can often be focused on cutting costs.
The problem and limitation to building profitability by cutting costs is that you can only cut costs until you have no more costs to cut, and then you might be out of business. Obviously you cannot build company growth on out of business; you cannot build company growth on cutting costs.
You can build on opportunities. The key is seeing the opportunities and knowing how to address them. In perceiving opportunities “the forest and the trees", the being to close to see it, can come into play. The advantage of an outside business development professional is that they can see the opportunities clearer.
A business development professional unveils possibilities for companies by revealing business building opportunities through the background of extensive business experience and a natural talent in business clarity and ideas, coupled with a valuable outside perspective, that creates business results that are effective - looking in from outside of the current perception.
Creating improved business outcomes for company growth requires a prudent combination of successful cost consciousness and business building that provides the most effective long-term profitability results.

The importance of maximizing sales and profitability results to drive company growth is of course essential. If we take a moment we can imagine the benefits of maximum company growth. We can also picture the opposite...
The Costs of Perception -
What is the cost of lack of sales effectiveness? What is the cost in loss of revenue? What is the cost to companies in missed opportunities that they have to build their companies? What is the loss in jobs, profitability, company and industry stature, quality of life, and unemployment to families, and communities? The costs can obviously be enormous.
What are the costs of being effective and maximizing sales and profitability? Being happy.
“In all cases the key is seeing, not seeking, the opportunities and knowing how to improve the results.”
In working with many companies I have seen they were not as effective in their sales processes or sales results as they could be. I found this true in both Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller companies. The sales and profitability loss of the companies existed as a result of these two areas:
The companies, actually having the opportunity to do better, had been operating under a “perception of effectiveness”.
In other words - the general trend I see in companies is that they have greater opportunities to be more effective in their sales and profitability - than they realize.
“The “reality of effectiveness” involves companies that know how to build effectively and profitably.”
