With the amount of uncertainty in the business environment at the moment, it’s easy to sit back and wait for things to settle down. The “she’ll be right” attitude has already seen some businesses close their doors.
As business leaders, we can choose to proactively manage the pre Christmas rush and continue to deliver value. So how can we ensure a positive impact on our business... here are some tips:
So how can we get strategic about what we want to achieve and ensure we are setting ourselves up for great things in the coming years?
"I'm frustrated that the people i'm supposed to be working with don't get it and I have to keep pushing them to get the message across. It's taking up a lot of my time and it's easier to just do the things myself". This is the most common frustrations that come up in Business Strategy sessions...
“When done well, strategic planning is simple”. Having a clear business strategy, leader development plan or annual strategy day retreat can be highly effective in moving you and your position forward.
"It's easy to forget, as a leader, that when employees don't get the wide view, not only does the point of their work escape them, but it can also forge frustrated leaders. It's hard to feel pride and ownership when you don't understand where things are going." Jason Fried
Have you ever worked in an environment where people seemed to be out to get everything they possibly could.... sometimes at the detriment of others in the business? It creates friction and a divergence from the goals of the business.
Clarity is the most important thing. I can compare clarity to pruning in gardening. You know, you need to be clear. If you are not clear, nothing is going to happen. You have to be clear. Then you have to be confident about your vision. And after that, you just have to put a lot of work in. - Diane von Furstenber
"One of the things I realised is that if you do not take control over your time and your life, other people will gobble it up. If you don't prioritise yourself, you constantly start falling lower and lower on your list, your kids fall lower and lower on your list". Michelle Obama
Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur. Clay Clark
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. Walt Disney
"Sometimes we make the process more complicated than we need to. We will never make a journey of a thousand miles by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. We make the journey by taking each day step by step and then repeating it again and again until we reach our destination". Joseph B. Wirthlin
Over the next 4 weeks, we in Australia experience a number of short weeks which include public holidays. That's awesome some would say, a chance for getting ahead or an opportunity to recharge the batteries and catch up with family.
“Getting Clarity is not found through intellect, but experienced through stillness.” Picture this. You are standing on the blocks of a swimming pool with eyes closed, ready to swim a length. Diving in, you swim flat out until you hit something hard.... when you open your eyes you are at the side of the pool. Does this sound like where you are in your career or your business?
“There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen ie; make your move, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.” - Mark Kay Ash
The first few weeks of 2018 has been hectic... follow up meetings from 2017, proposals, board appointments and proud moments where businesses have seen the value that can be created when we focus on thinking bigger than we currently are. So what’s your strategy?
Take Action - without taking steps to get a result we limit our ability to get the result. If I don't knock I won't get to know if the bathroom is free
From discussing new and exciting business opportunities, to becoming a godparent for the second time, to visiting the local RSL for the members draw, the people you are surrounded by form your "family" or your "tribe".
