Want more out of your business?
Then you’re going to have to put more into it. Yes, I said that. Not more time. It likely owns all you have now! Not more energy. Is there any left? And not any more “how” thinking. I’ll bet you’ve got hours of that stowed away.
You need to put more strategic thinking or more definitive action or more strategic thinking and definitive action and less of everything else into your business. And I mean everything; less time managing, less time doing the task that is your company widget and less time poring over the books deciding you’re unsure of what you see because you’re stuck in the “how loop”. It is time to put your team to work, use all the good hands and minds in the building and, let’s say it together, start working smarter not harder.
As of 2014, about 10,000 baby boomers retire every day. While millennials are moving into and upward in organizations, research (by Deloitte) shows that they’re not developing leadership skills at the rate needed to replace retiring leaders. In fact, a 2015 Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) survey of 2,339 managers in 24 organizations found that for 20 identified leadership competencies, the level of proficiency is inadequate “across countries, industries, and organizational levels.”
The importance of effective leadership development is undeniable. Recent research by Training Industry and The Center for Leadership Studies found that across generations, “leaders are better prepared to influence the behavior of followers and followers are more receptive to direction when effective leadership development programs are in place.”
So why should you, the entrepreneur, be any different? Are you developing your skills as needed? Are you learning to create dynamic team conversations, invite creative thinking, encourage trust between teams and departments? Do you have training in place for your team? Is your company thriving in your competent, enthusiastic hands?
My name is Kat Nesbit and I’m and Executive Advisor, to Businesses Large & Small. I’ve been doing this for some time and I love what I do!
Do you remember when you felt the same way? Looking at my statement above, were you angry when you read it? Did it occur to you to call me up and tell me I have no idea what I’m talking about? Did it hit home in some way and maybe more now that you think more on it? It’s likely you’re a medium sized business. Medium sized business hurts. It’s time for some rudimentary changes to your structure, your systems, and YOUR job and it’s likely you don’t know the smartest next steps and you’re standing on shaky ground.
You are in Phase II Developmental pain.
My challenge to you is, get out of it! Get a mentor, get some training, get educated on what you don’t know, join or build an E-BOD (Entrepreneurial – Board of Directors,) THINK and make some choices and grow or shrink and design your transition.
Of course, I have a couple of programs designed for exactly this problem.
If you’re not ready to get out of pain, stay here a minute. Look around. Grab something free. Listen to a few blogs. Go and look at our products! Consider what might be the best fit for you. Call or email if you like. You came here because you want help with something, you want to change something. Don’t let me discourage you or distract you from your purpose. Again, consider what might be the best fit for you and then choose the best next step to claiming this change you want. Then:
- Put a time frame on it.
- Give yourself a tangible set of guidelines/rules/must haves.
- Decide what you’ll accept (internal or external negotiations.)
- Go do something about it!
I tell you what, this is complete overkill, it’s the framework for the first 3 weeks of our Leadership Program. Download this SMART Goal Setting-Workbook, print it, read through it once real quick and then decide if some or all of it might work for you as a template for thinking some stuff through.
