“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.”- Nido Qubein
A business leader is responsible for establishing the VISION and the FOCUS of the organization. Let’s discuss the importance of staying focused in the right areas.
You must fight to keep your people focused because there are too many distractions!
Just like you, they also need to be operating effectively. You must get them doing the right things, not just doing things right.
In addition to sharing your vision, you must be skillful at developing systems and organizational structure that support this vision. In short, you must be a business architect. While the vision is the foundation of your business, you must be able to build the walls, roof, plumbing system, etc. Your marketing, selling, operations, and infrastructure must align with your vision.
As Leader, focus your team on the following 6 areas:
1. Satisfying your customers/clients
2. Getting results, not making excuses
3. Continually improving
4. Maintaining profits
5. Keeping a long-term perspective
6. Having fun
Never lose sight of the fact that your primary responsibility as a Strategic Business Owner is LEADING!
