Who knows for sure if new ideas will work until you’ve tried them?
As owners, we have developed methods and procedures that have worked for us. Naturally, when we hire a new employee for our Carpet Cleaning Company we work to instill these methods and procedures in them. Obviously, they have worked well for us and hopefully helped us to achieve goals of success and profitability.
But sometimes we put “blinders” on when trying to achieve our goals. These “blinders” may prevent us from being open to new ideas. You can teach people the best way you know how; but keep an open mind if they occasionally offer a new idea for doing something. It’s possibly a way to improve your services and certainly a way of keeping imaginative and capable people happy working with you.
Sometimes it costs too much, the risk is too great and the possible gain is too small to do something differently. That’s when you have to use your judgment and rely on your experience. However, be careful not to use your judgment of something as an excuse to be negative. The more new ideas you evaluate the more good ones you will discover and you will receive. Many of the procedures we practice today are from input from our employees.
An open-minded owner stimulates people; a close minded person does just the opposite. Sometimes it pays to try people’s ideas just for the sake of encouraging them to think.
