Is your New Year’s resolution to work smarter not harder?
Then shift the way you work and empower your team to make 2015 a profitable year for your business.
Your startup business success is not all about creating products and optimizing your business strategy.
Don’t forget that your core team is the key to your brand success.
Yes, it can be scary to give up control and put trust in your team.
But if done successfully, dividing and conquering allows for deeper engagement with an outcome of a better overall customer experience.
Are you ready to collaborate?
Here are 3 questions to ask yourself:
- Do you often have a solution in mind and “engineer” meetings and input to meet your overall objective?
- For all business initiatives do you have an organization-wide brainstorm to launch the project and define the project goals and tactics together?
- Do you think that getting feedback from your team means more work?
There is a big difference between true and contrived collaboration.
Start with very high level initiatives for your new year planning based on customer feedback.
Then create an environment where people can collectively share their ideas and build open each person’s experience and knowledge.
You will be surprised how upfront planning and an open mind can lead to more authentic and creative business solutions.
Happy New Year!
