There are many reasons you may be looking forward to 2020. It is a fresh new decade for you and your business to thrive in, but where do you start? This month we are focusing on Strategic Planning, but there are many other ways to jumpstart your personal or organizational growth. Below are just a few examples, but check out our website for even more options.
1. Set Goals
This may seem fundamental, but you would be surprised how many professionals fail to set monthly, quarterly, or yearly goals. Setting goals and objectives is essential for you and your organization to move forward. Start small and watch your efforts translate to improved interpersonal relationships to motivating your staff and more.
2. Create Best Practices
Organizations (nonprofits, businesses and government entities) can benefit by looking to many studies on the best practices of successful organizations. One example is defining and or evaluating your internal processes with a focus on increasing in communications and efficiencies at all levels. Set aside the time necessary to optimize one process and see what a difference it can make.
3. Remember the Big Picture
Successful organizations work every day to keep their mission in focus. This assures that their ‘customers’ are satisfied. They use a holistic approach to customer service, where they are meeting the needs of their customers and clients at every step of the journey. Creating a smooth customer delivery process will ensure that your prospects become lifetime clients and your referral rates will skyrocket.
