4 Rhythm Habits You Can Improve (Video)

By: Nicole HradekThu, Jan 12, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

At Breakthrough Conference 2016, there was a breakout session called Rhythm Hacks, Tips, and Tricks presented by yours truly! It was a great workshop where I hope I was able to deliver little secrets that you may not have known about our software. But, since not everyone who reads our blogs uses Rhythm software, I thought I would share part of my session that can apply to all Rhythm fans!

From helping clients and seeing their dashboards, I’ve come up with a list of things that most teams could improve. Even if you don’t use the Rhythm software but implement Rhythm habits (i.e., Weekly Adjustment Meetings, Red-Yellow-Green), these may be some easy adjustments to make your and your team’s execution more robust.

The Secret to Getting It All Done

By: Jessica WishartThu, Dec 15, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

At our Breakthrough Conference this year, our head of products, Ryan Walcott, presented a breakout session called “The Secret to Getting It All Done.” Wow - that’s quite a title, and not surprisingly, the session was packed. I think we all find ourselves wishing we had more time - watching our to-do lists grow or having that feeling that we just can’t keep up with all the work we have to do, both personally and professionally. In addition to being our head of products and consulting with a handful of clients, Ryan is also a pastor at a local church and has seven children. As a mother of one who feels lucky to make it to church at all some weeks, I was very interested to hear what he has to say on this topic.

Well, let me tell you a story about Rhythm’s SuperGreen team at our Breakthrough Conference recently held in Charlotte, NC, for about 150 guests looking for a breakthrough in their performance.

Coming Soon - Predictable Results

By: Patrick TheanWed, Oct 19, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

We had many exciting moments on the first day of our Breakthrough Conference yesterday. And, I was so
happy to end it with a story from one of our clients, Dr. Vogt, CEO of BioPlus, and a sneak peek at our new book coming out spring 2016, Predictable Results: How Successful Companies Tackle Growth Challenges and Win. This is a really special project for me because I have the opportunity to showcase our consultants and the work they do with our amazing clients, like Dr. V.

How To Double Your Return From Any Conference - Part 2

By: Barry PruittThu, Oct 6, 2016 @ 09:00 PM

If the event does not help you think differently, do something more effectively or, succeed at something that you would not have otherwise done, there is no event value. Whether you feel good about the event or not, the measurable success criteria is value.

If you read my last blog, you know my objective is for you to have a way to first determine if conference attendance is worth it, and second, to squeeze every bit of investment return from attending – much like a seasoned tax accountant in preparation for year end.

Supercharge Your Sales Engine with Core Customer & Brand Promise

By: Alan GehringerTue, Oct 4, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

How much time, money, and energy are you wasting trying to sell to the wrong customers? 

Determining who your core customer is and developing the right brand promise can really supercharge your sales engine.

We are gearing up for our second annual Breakthrough Conference in Charlotte in October. This year’s event promises to be even better than last. And last year was amazing, as so many of our attendees commented. We have several keynote sessions planned, from our own Patrick Thean and Cathy McCullough, one with Dr. Stephen Vogt from BioPlus, and one with Joseph Grenny, author of Crucial Conversations. Along with the keynotes, we have a great schedule of breakout sessions developed by our team and presented by our expert consultants.

How To Double Your Return From Any Conference - Part 1

By: Barry PruittThu, Sep 29, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

At Rhythm Systems, we believe in getting smarter on a regular basis. I say "believe in" getting smarter because it’s one of our core values, Keep Smart. In exercising this value, we read books, watch webcasts, teach sessions weekly to one another and attend conferences. We’ve learned that any of these activities has much more value when we begin with the end in mind. When conducting onsite planning sessions, we’ll begin with the end in mind so it may not be surprising that we do something similar for conference attendance. We start with a long-range strategy (what’s the overall objective for the conference), priorities (main objectives we wish to complete) which might included knowledge, people connections, business ideas, and measures to know if we’re hitting our conference targets or not.

Lessons from the Football Field

By: Liz McBrideWed, Sep 28, 2016 @ 09:00 AM

Charlie is inconsolable. His uniform is missing from the locker and the school lost his sports physical so he has to sit out. As I pull into the front of the middle school, my puffy-eyed 7th grader is there alone waving meekly at me. I roll my window down as he tries to open the door.

“No, Charlie. You’re not getting in. Take me to your coach.”

Breakthrough Your Complex Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

By: Ted SkinnerSun, Sep 25, 2016 @ 12:01 PM

Summer is over, kids are back in school, and now it's time to turn your focus back to the workplace. Yes, I know it might not be as exciting as hanging out with your family and friends on the Isle of Palms to see rescued sea turtles released, but you know life’s a beach and it is time to get back to work.

So, as I sit at my desk preparing for our second annual Breakthrough Conference this October 18 and 19 in sunny Charlotte, NC, I am researching the vast amount of KPI data and resources that we have here at Rhythm Systems. As a leading software and consulting firm laser focused on execution for mid-sized companies, we have helped our clients implement thousands of KPIs specifically tailored to their unique business situation. These KPIs help companies grow, recruit and maintain high-performance teams, increase operational efficiencies and much more.
