DVD - The 1% Difference

By: K. Lyons & Associates  09-12-2011

The Secrets of the one percent difference DVD is an exciting new addition to our services. In the past we’ve always worked onsite with our clients and now for the first time you can experience firsthand many of the tips and techniques we share with our clients.  Now you can benefit from those tips and strategies without having to wait to attend a workshop.  This DVD set delivers practical strategies and tactics you can implement with low cost to your business that when properly implemented will have immediate impact on your financial results. The DVD also takes the principles found in our book several steps further.

As we work through the various modules of the one percent difference we’ll walk you through specific examples of what our clients have done to achieve the desired gain. It’s important to note that it’s not necessary and sometimes not possible to achieve one percent gains in all the areas we cover. However, we stress that clients focus only on those areas that have a high financial impact and high probability of success.

Achieving a one percent difference is very doable for most employees. We’ve asked thousands of employees over the years if improving one percent is doable and the overwhelming answer is ‘yes’. I suspect your employees would also answer ‘yes’.

The one percent difference principles work because:

  • They’re simple
  • They’re easy to understand
  • They don’t require a financial investment on your part
  • They don’t take employees away from the job because we focus on the decisions they are already making
  • You can see results in the near term vs. long term

The one percent difference DVD program consists of the following four modules:

If it’s possible to improve your margins by even just 1%, the difference between your current margin levels and potential margins could result in significant unrealized profit. Training and more specifically this module will give you the focus and show you how to implement these principles in the near term without consuming a lot of time.


Employee Engagement Training | Lyons & Associates

Despite the popularity of employee engagement training it’s very unusual to see an employee engagement initiative that focuses on how to make the business more profitable. It seems even more unusual when you consider that most organizations have never provided any coaching or training around how everyday decisions impact profits.


Competitive Pricing Strategy Training - Business Volume

Sales representatives often make price concessions to attract more volume from customers and if they don’t, customers usually ask for, or demand a lower price at certain volume levels. With the right type of training you might also discover that from a profit perspective you might be better off by raising your prices and giving up some volume in the process.


Pricing Optimization Strategies - Product Pricing Strategies Course

Price optimization strategies and decisions are often the most important decisions a business makes since small changes to pricing usually have more impact on the bottom line than any other decision. Achieving margin gains is one of the most common outcomes our customers experience and we hope you’ll watch the videos and apply the principles to your own organization.


Business Financing Books - The 1% Difference

Purchasing affects costs of goods sold; managers, supervisors and employees affect expenses; other employees affect the utilization of assets such as inventory, receivables and fixed assets; and everyone affects productivity. In many businesses, sales representatives have the greatest influence on the financial success of the business since their decisions directly affect one of the most important lines on the income statement, the sales line.


Products | Lyons & Associates

At Lyons & Associates business acumen training is more about understanding how to effect the income statement, balance sheet or cash flow statement rather than focussing on how to read it. Managers and employees walk out of a room knowing a little more about business but often don’t know how those principles specifically relate to the decisions they make every day.
