Being the Head of Department today I conducted a meeting with my executives to sort out some problems and issues related to productive activities of shops. It revealed the role of P/PC balance in our effectiveness.
In the meeting, we discussed the following problems.
- Issues of missing items from stores,
- Problems of unproductive employees,
- Problems of day-to-day communications
Finally, I discovered that these problems have cropped up as the concerned executives did not maintain P/PC balance.
Let us first make out what is the full form of P and PC. Here “P “means production and “PC “means production capability. Production stands for production of desired results and production capability stands for the ability to produce results.
You can study production and production capability in the 7 habits of highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey in the linkhttps://www.franklincovey.com/the-7-habits.html
In an organisation, we use physical assets like human resources, machines so on so forth to meet production.
Our analysis revealed that the concerned executives pressed the employees excessively for achieving results without improving their production capabilities of the employees.
Maintaining a very good relationship with the employees could have improved their motivation level and production capability. It could have avoided the above problematic situations.
Too much focus on production(short-term results) and too much focus on production capability are problems.
Maintaining the P/PC balance is the art of our effectiveness in all spheres of life.
My wife is always working hard for the betterment of my family since my marriage. If I do not spend quality time with her and take it granted that she will continue to do so for the rest of her life, I may prove wrong. She will definitely stop doing so very soon. Soon we will be heading for a ruined family. Spending quality time with her enhances her true capability.
P/PC balance in our life
So let us unleash the power of P/PC balance in our life. Once suitably unleashed this power can make us better persons and better families.
