Vista Consulting team members have been told more than once that we are like a firm’s therapist, so don’t ever be shy about venting, asking, or bouncing ideas off your Vista consultant.
The Vista team can help your firm to thrive, but we don’t bring magic pixie dust to our assignments. Many of our recommendations require your team to roll up their sleeves, open their minds, and put in the work. In an already busy atmosphere, implementing process improvements can seem insurmountable. In fact, efficiency and effectiveness may seem to go down some prior to going up as new systems are put in place. We call this, “the dip”, and it is normal – and sometimes necessary – to soar to the next level. Recognizing the dip for what it truly is, your investment period prior to payoff, is imperative in maintaining the proper focus on the process. Think of this way: You can’t change a tire on the car as it speeds down the road. It has to be done, because if you don’t fix it, you’ll never complete your journey. Sure, stopping the car and changing the tire slows the trip…for a short time. But once you hit the road, you’ll be cruisin’! We ask you to keep this in mind and never quit while you’re in the dip!
