Do you set New Year’s Resolutions for your business? I do. I find it’s a terrific way to start the first quarter with focus. Here are some suggestions for your New Year’s Business Resolutions. Resolve this year to ROCK your business…
1) Boost the Value of Your Business!
A company’s value is 90% about perception, and 10% about financial reality. What is your company worth? Why? What should it be valued at? Make this the year to massively increase the value of your business, which will result in more choices, more financial freedom, and 5 star staff.
2) Learn To Love Networking
Far too often, and for far too many people, networking is an uncomfortable social ritual. Most of us don’t do it well, and most of us don’t enjoy it, either. When done right, networking will not only be a career-enhancing experience, but will also build fulfilling personal connections. Learn the optimal techniques to increase your networking momentum.
3) Prime Your Power
As we go through life we learn about powerâ€”who has it and who doesn’t. Where does it start and stop? How do you exercise it with responsibility and compassion? How do you get it and grow it? Explore a new take on what power means and how to use it.
4) Innovate and Execute!
Most businesses have done all they can to boost the bottom line. Now it’s time to pump up the top line, and the best way to do that is by accelerating innovation. It’s key to do so with specific processes and a structure for making the corporate culture more entrepreneurial, otherwise innovation falls on its face.
Next, you need to focus on execution, because dreams and visions are a dime a dozen if you don’t execute them. That’s where the rubber hits the road. Rapid innovation is key to competition in the global market place. And all too often, innovation and execution lag. Learn the keys to consistent innovation and optimal execution.
