What Type of Small Business Owner Are You?
-Bought a job
-Inherited family business
How a business leader leads people, not the company (comprised of people), emanates from the leader’s emotional intelligence quotient and a communication style. The company tone is set by these results. What the leader focuses on reveals the company culture.
Profit or Customer Centric?
Unaware of the late Peter Drucker’s wisdom that the purpose of a business is to create a customer, the number crunchers do not have large success managing people. They are “widget” inventory and sales driven.
Their myoptic focus can alienate employees who require attention in the forms of training, reward encouragement,
and pride in their contribution to the organization, especially today’s Millennials.
- Schedule a weekly meeting with yourself and your coach for feedback.
- Keep activity logs rather than to-do lists.
- As projects or campaigns unfold, implement the 3-Phase-Loop strategy: implement, monitor, and adjust. That way you are never too far into a project that can’t modified. This is imperative with the market’s frenetic shifts these days.
