the start to our financial year – a time to kick off a new budget, implement a new
plan, and set tougher goals and targets.
I always get excited with a new year – I set challenges for myself in an attempt to keep with the pace of change. I know what I want, what I really need and I like to dream of bigger and better changes in my business!
Listening to people discuss their business plans and observing what they do I often see a void in wants and needs and in particular their ‘change plan’. It’s a simple void (easily avoidable) - no matter how courageous the change is - if they avoid getting people involved in the planning then it’s tougher and costlier to get them on-board down the track. How many times have you seen the revolt towards change?
Not everyone wants to join the change movement; however your resolution can be about:
- Talking openly about the creation of the budgets, plans goals and targets
- Explaining ‘the why’ – rather than the what, who, when
- Asking "how are we going to achieve or meet or exceed?"
Leaders facilitate conversations and today’s an opportunity to create a movement which people want to join to achieve and exceed your goals.
