A FEW STEPS FOR GROWING YOUR BUSINESS
Define as clear as possible your business as it is currently
You want to be more aware of what is your current business and why you are doing it? Who are you in this business and who are you serving, what do you deliver exactly and what needs are you covering for those who you are delivering to? What are the ground values of your business, what is its mission and what is its vision. What has held you back until now from reaching the results wanted? By answering such questions and many others you will be able to define very well the point where you are at right now.
Clarify where you want to take your business
At this point, you will clarify what you really wish. If all would be possible, how would you like for your ideal business to look? Why? Regardless of where you are now, you have 2 options: grow or die as a business. It is easy to say “I want to know how to develop my business” but what do you do afterwards? We often hear that if you have a strong “why”, the “how” will come. You just clarified what is in fact your business, why you have it, where do you want to go with it, what needs your clients have and why do they have them. Now it’s the time to find out what the key is for mastering success strategies.
Define what you need to reach the business that you want
You have clarified to yourself now where you are currently and where you want to go with your business. Here, we will explore what you should do and what should happen in order for you to fill this gap. As such, you will set certain objectives based on which we will make an action plan, after which I will guide and support you in order to make that happen. Of course, we will also focus on the most important pillars of your business, like your employees, clients, collaborators, marketing and sales aspect, finances and not lastly YOU and your development as a leader having as grounds a strong personal development with much focus on your emotional intelligence which is crucial in our times.
Choose, evaluate and develop employees/ talents in your business
The team of a business is like the root to a tree. In order to have a successful business you need to have a healthy, high performance, competent team. We will thus evaluate who forms a part of your team? How much do they resonate with the values of the company? What people do you need and how do you successfully recruit them? How do you help the people in your team develop themselves and develop your business? Is there some among them who does not fit and maybe who needs to be replaced? Who would be your ideal employee and what should happen with each one of them in order to reach that level?
Remember how important your client is for your business
Most people take all the clients who come their way, ignoring the fact that the client/ person with whom you are working also need to be selected. Thus, the collaborations created will be flawed and you will have problems later. Growing your business also means learning how to attract and maintain loyal clients. Therefore, you will define your ideal client – avatar – as I like calling him – and you will find ways to reach him and keep him.
Continue to add value and be innovative/creative
When you discover how you can consistently add value to your business better than anyone in your market, you can identify better where you are now. You will also clarify better what you need to do to take your business where you want it to reach. You will gain more safety and you will be able to become a dominant force in your market.
Become the person who can grow the business that you wish for
We often want things which we cannot achieve if we don’t have the abilities and skills needed both personally and professionally. You are the one coordinating the business and the team and it is important firstly to be able to coordinate yourself. This is why we will enter very much into the area of personal coaching and executive leadership coaching
We will thus explore who you really are and what you really wish for? What defines you? What are your strong and weak points? What competences you have and what competences/skills do you need to develop yourself? We will work in parallel with managing your own business and concrete and current situations.
An extremely important aspect for growing your business is staying flexible. Growing your business is not always comfortable, because this requires change to take place. By optimally clarifying and becoming aware of the situation and by heading your attention to solutions, you will manage to get back on track very fast. A coach will help you do this optimally, on grounds of calm and confidence, beyond emotions and beliefs that can sabotage you.
It is important for you to understand that change is needed for any type of growth. So long as you are faithful to the fundamental values of your company and to developing products and services wanted by your clients, products which you believe in, then all upsetting challenges will go away.
