Take It To The End Zone
Hut, Hut, Hike! We are about to enter into the fourth quarter of the calendar year, and it is time to take a minute to recharge, regroup and refocus. Take some time to work ON your business instead of IN your business.
Bring your team to our 90-Day Planning Workshop on Thursday, September 22nd from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Urbandale. Just like a football team takes time before the fourth quarter begins to strategize their plays and go over their game plan, so should your leadership team take time outside of your business to review your goals and create an Action Plan of how to tackle the last quarter to end the year strong! Join the huddle for a half-day to clarify your vision and motivate your team to end the year strong.
It’s crunch time! Whether your business goals are right where you expect them to be, or you are struggling to meet them, it is not too late to rally your team together and identify changes that are necessary to move your business forward. Below are three tips to focus on when looking to take greater control of your business and to better achieve your goals:
- Focus on what matters. Business is not a game of luck, it is a game of strategy. Defining your overall goals is the first step in the right direction. As the coach of your company, you have the responsibility of having a clear quarterly game plan in mind to improve productivity and profitability. Define where you want to be in three months and determine KPIs for each member of your team to help them stay on track to achieving your business’s overarching goals.Goals with a written plan have an 80% higher success rate. Write them down in a place where you see them every day as a way to stay focused on the end zone.
- It takes the whole team. Walter Payton famously said, “We are stronger together than we are alone.” Your business consists of a team working together as a cohesive unit for the same goal and vision. When everyone is on the same page and works together, they achieve peak performance and experience success. Every player has an essential role in your business and they must be held accountable for it.When creating your game plan for the fourth quarter, be sure your whole team is on board with your goals. Individuals working against your mission are hurting your whole organization’s success.
- Don’t give up. If your team hasn’t been meeting their goals for the past three quarters, it is not too late to turn the game around. It is time to strategize your comeback! Instead of just accepting defeat, adjust your goals to be more realistic for your current situation. Analyze why you have been falling short and address changes you need to make to improve upon those areas.Business owners rarely fail because they didn’t work hard enough; they fail because they work on the wrong things. Take half a day to regroup and explore the ways you can better reach your goals. Attending the 90-Day Planning Workshop will give you the confidence and decision-making skills to take your business to the next level.
Tackle your goals head-on with full force to finish the year in the right direction. Bring your team to the 90-Day Planning Workshop to create a strategic game plan so you can hit the ground running back at the office.
