PEOPLE, PRODUCTIVITY & PROCESS
Analysing your business, and making sure you have the right
Lead your industry, lead your people and lead by example. Set your business apart from the rest and take your vision to the next level.
Invest in your people. Harness the power of employee motivation to support strategic goals. The long-term success of your business requires that you assemble the right talent to build your brand. Your team is the company’s backbone to growth.
If you’re not willing to get your hands dirty and work in the trenches, you might as well not even start.
Delegate to employees and avoid micromanaging
A manager’s job is to delegate and then inspect progress. Do not micro-manage. Keep your business organization flat. If you delegate effectively, you will get more out then you expect. Have an actual written training and orientation plan so your employees know what is required of them. Use an incentive-based rewards system and maintain a ‘no-problem’ attitude about issues that crop up.
Sales is the oxygen to the fire. Invest in your sales teams and equip them with the best tools to do the job and produce desirable results to the best of their ability.
Build a personal network of like-minded entrepreneurs.
The key to success, is to plan where you are going
Have a written plan
Without a plan, it is merely a dream. It doesn’t have to be a book, but you need a few pages outlining specific objectives, strategies, financing, a sales and marketing plan, and a determination of the cash you need to get things done. Writing it all down is a crucial first step.
Don’t marry your plan
Every great military general in history has known that even the best-laid plan sometimes has to be thrown in the fire when the bullets start flying. Adapt, confront and conquer.
Keep track of everything and manage by the numbers
Create written systems for everything, because you will reap benefits from them later. This is how you train your employees and retain consistency. Know your numbers and check them daily and make all decisions based on what they tell you. One of the most important calculations is cash flow. Always determine how much cash you need to run the business.
Use the Internet
It is incredibly powerful and very cost efficient, but it takes time and some skill. It is about creating a community, using social media networking such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and blogging to build rapport with your market. You need to get on the train and do it, because your competitors are.
Keep your ego in check and listen to others
Advisors are crucial because you need people to bounce ideas off, interrogate what you’re doing, and push you to greater accomplishments, holding you accountable for what you are committing to do. Always be true to your word and follow through on commitments, even when difficult and challenging. This isn’t about you; it’s about the business.
