This week we are going to address the concept of PROCESS and the role it plays in overall time and energy management. Process is one of the topics that people may not have considered as part of time and energy management. Process is a key element of STRATEGY one of the blades on my productivity windmill. The windmill has a gear mechanism that works from within; the smoother, more consistent, and faster the blades turn, the more productive you are. Process is the way that you do what you do. When process strong, it is the mechanism that takes plans and turns them into results…it oils the gears and the windmill turns smoothly. But if it’s weak it’s like tossing a wrench into the gears! All the planning in the world will not bring you any closer to your goals if there isn’t a PROCESS for implementing them. Planning sets the standard and process implements the standard through structure so that the standard can be met every time. And Process is the part of STRATEGY that bridges the gap to SUSTAINABILITY.
This week, Steven Drewes of Drewes Dynamics will be joining us to discuss cutting the fat from your processes so they are strong, effective and sustainable. Steven is the president of Drewes Dynamics, LLC and Lean Worldwide where their focus is to rapidly transform organizations and business cultures.

SHOW NOTES: In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. The topic for this episode is, “Trying to lean on someone who bends is futile.”
In many shows we share quotes from famous (or infamous) or notable individuals. Yet, information comes from all types of sources. I found the quote that is the show topic at http://forums.narcolepsynetwork.org/index.php?/topic/6237-breaking-up-cuz-he-just-doesnt-care/.
We are not evaluating the credibility of this public internet discussion forum, but instead are assessing the content of the assertion. Is it a myth that when we try to lean on (emotionally or physically) someone who bends that it will be pointless (or futile)?
If our goal is to lean on someone and remain standing (literally or figuratively), it is logical that if I lean on someone for support (to remain standing) and they bend that I will fall. Thus, it is futile to lean on something that is not stable enough to support (or hold) me. But, how do we know who will bend and who will hold us? The most helpful answer is to remember what the person did the last time you tried to lean on them.

The alternative scenario is in, “He ain’t heavy, mister… he’s my brother.” This idea has been in popular culture and you can read about it at http://www.boystown.org/blog/the-story-behind-he-aint-heavy.
So, who are you going to lean on?

You can always lean on God.
We all have heard the buzz - Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, admonishes women to believe in yourself, give it your all, "lean in" and "don't leave before you leave" - which is to say don't doubt your ability to combine work and family, thus edge yourself out of plum assignments before you even get it. Great point, right? However, should career advancement be our primary goal? Is this advice relevant to women juggling, husband, children, and a regular 9 to 5? Or even better, single mothers with those same obligations?
On Monday, December 9th, show host, Ola Jackson and our guest, Jennifer Keitt of The Jennifer Keitt Show, based in Atlanta, will examine whether this message is a relevant message for all women. Should our message be “Lean In or Stand Back”?
Onyx Woman Magazine on the Air invites you to join the conversation.
